Rename a large number of files in a single operation with Advanced Renamer

Renaming the occasional file is a simple enough process, but it can quickly become laborious if there are a large number to work through. If you have copied a number of photos from your digital camera or a series of videos from your digital camcorder, it is likely that they have been automatically named numerically. While this is useful to a certain extent, it can also make things difficult when you want to track down a particular file in future.

Advanced Renamer, as the name would suggest, simplifies the process of renaming a large number of files by making it possible to process them as a batch. Files can be simply dragged and dropped into the program and you can then use 'methods' to choose renaming criteria. For example, you may choose to replace the identification letters automatically added by your camera with the name of the month in which the photographs were taken.

But it is not just renaming that can be achieved with ease. The program can also be used to changed file attributes and adjust timestamps en masse, saving you from having to manually edit a large number of files individually. The program is also useful for renaming folders filled with MP3s.

Built in file previewing comes in particularly handy when working with image files, but whatever type of file you use the program to edit, it is sure to save you a great deal of time and effort.

Version 3.81 changes include (changelog):

- CSV Import: Default Apply To fields to name and extension instead of just name
- CSV Import: Program will remember field values when window is closed
- CSV Import: Changed to use UTF-8 encoding
- Renumber method: Fixed renumbering relative numbers when the number is very long
- When using media tags like Img or Video for folders the program will now use the properties of the first file in the folder
- Load list now supports UTF-8
- New case method did not support UTF-8 in the pattern match modes
- Fixed <Inc Nr> zeropadding and <Num Files> value when working with file pairs


A great time saving tool, Advanced Renamer makes light work of the tedious task of renaming files.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
