  1. Hi Madhur – Nice! Batch renaming is really useful and this one is portable. I love apps. that don’t need to be installed.

  2. I agree with Kim. I used to use a piece of software similar to this, but what I like about this program is that it’s portable. Very useful since you can plunk it into a USB drive and make use of it elsewhere, even at an internet cafe if necessary.
