Editors' Review

Rename for Mac locates and labels files quickly on your system. Its additional features for searching files makes it a good program for many users.

Rename for Mac installs easily and starts up into a rather basic interface. Most will be able to discern its main functions without too much trial and error. A row of check boxes on the left side allows the user to select options for operations, including extensions, prefixes, and suffixes, among others. To the right of each of the checkboxes are areas where text can be entered. For example, next to the find function, user can enter the text to look for and its replacement. In the bottom of the window, a list of selected files appears where the change can be previewed and confirmed before implementing. The labels and boxes do not have obvious functions, which could make a new user's time learning the program difficult. Additionally, once we clicked on the "Add Files" option we noticed that some of the buttons were not labeled in English, but in Dutch. The search and replace functions did work quickly during testing, returning the proper names as entered.

Rename for Mac performs its functions well with only a few issues along the way. If you don't mind figuring it out on your own and have lots of files to rename, this is a decent choice.
