Name Mangler 3 for Mac OS X is a great utility for batch renaming of files. Here’s my review.
In my job (probably just like you) I work with lot of files on my computer—images for websites, screenshots for the App Store, financial statements and receipts for the accountant. Organizing and managing all these files becomes a lot easier when I can assign them standardized names, and so I was really happy to discover Name Mangler 3 by Many Tricks Software.
Name Mangler 3 satisfies all my requirements for a tool that can change filenames in bulk:
Name Mangler 3 does all this, and much much more. For example, through data tokens you could automatically add information to the filename such as image size, height and width. It’s really very powerful!
I found Name Mangler 3 in the App Store through searching, and bought it on the hope it’d be good. When I discovered just how good it is, I wanted to see who was behind the app—and was happily surprised to find that the maker is Many Tricks software, the same little company that publishes other great Mac apps I use, like Moom, Time Sink and Usher.
