Review: Quickly rename batches of files with NameChanger for Mac

Rename a batch of files or folders quickly and with less hassle using NameChanger for Mac.

Having to rename a bunch of files manually every time can be labor-intensive. With NameChanger for Mac, users can now rename their files quickly and easily in just a snap. While not too complicated for inexperienced users, this app will keep advanced users more than satisfied with the level of customization offered.

To install NameChanger for Mac you just have to drop the app into the Applications folder. Upon startup this application will greet you with a clean, tidy, and easy-to-navigate user interface. While the app has only one, pretty basic function, it is very useful. It replaces the original text of the file or folder with a new custom text. This is perfect for users who need to organize a bunch of files on their Mac. For example, a batch of photos, including DSC390003, DSC390004, and DSC390005 could be renamed London 03, London 04, and London 05. The app will show you a sample of the new file name in real time, which is very convenient. It also allows you to edit the date of the file created. However, there is no "undo" function, which would have been a welcome option.

Although all Macs come pre-installed with Automator, which basically performs the same function, there's just no comparison with NameChanger for Mac in terms of ease of use. Users who frequently need to rename files in bulk will find this app very useful.
