CNET Editors' review
Larger hard drives have led to mass amounts of saved and hard-to-catalogue files. A Better Finder Rename for Mac can help rename your files into whatever cataloging system you wish. This is definitely useful when going through old files, but it's also useful to keep new files searchable.
A Better Finder Rename for Mac allows for quick renaming of files using a wide selection of customizable options. The program uses an easy drag-and-drop feature to select files. The user selects which criteria to apply for the suggested new names and then is given the option to modify the names even further. The program is able to handle a vast number of file types including text, image and music. The name changes are not automatic, so it is possible to try out different criteria without concern. The free trial limits name changes to batches of up to 10 files. The full version costs $19.95 and forever upgrades can be purchased for an additional $19.95.
Even with the limitation, A Better Finder Rename for Mac trial version is an effective tool for renaming files. The trial version is geared toward personal use but the expansion in the full version makes it business-appropriate.

"So much malware."
Version: A Better Finder Rename 9.27
I couldn't say, since I was distracted by the malware meltdown of 2013.
Um, MALWARE. Suddenly, I have Yahoo! as my default search engine on Firefox and Chrome, all kinds of Ebay and Amazon extensions on both browsers. Oh, and a couple of applications that I can't delete. And this on my Mac!
I've used CNET for years to download programs. It's supposed to be safe. I even went through (albeit unintentionally) the CNET installer. What. The. Heck.
