Rename This! allows you to quickly rename your TV shows' episode files based on show title, season number and episode number and title. It fetches show information from the Internet and also allows you to manually manage the data (just go to Preferences). You can choose one of the six default patterns for renamed files or you can create your own.

Here's how the app works.

First, you should have your episode files organized in the following folder hierarchy: Show name/Season/[all your episode files for that season]. This is not a strict requirement, but it helps the app "guess" some of the information.

Then, you select (or drag-and-drop from the Finder) the folder containing your episodes (the season folder). The app will try to guess the show and the season. It will ask to update the show list and the episode list from the Internet if it can't find a match.

You then have to check if all the files are correctly matched to the corresponding episodes.

In the end, you choose how the files should look like once they're renamed (by choosing a default scheme or by creating one) and click 'Rename!'.

That's all!

What’s New

Version 1.3

Fixed some layout issues (which should have been fixed in the previous release but unfortunately were not).
Switched sources for episode info, since the primary source I was using is experiencing some problems (episode list is often incomplete).

An enormous time-saver!

This app is incredible! I set out to find an app like this, but didn’t expect to find one so fully-featured (and free at that!). I would seriously pay for this app; I probably use it at least three times a week. To those experiencing crashes: what prevents them for me is to make sure each season of whatever show you’re looking to rename is inside a folder of that show’s name. For example, Season One of Friends would be in a folder called ‘Season 1’ which would itself be in a folder called ‘Friends.’

Work great!

WAY better than trying to do this on Windows. It just works!

A good app but a little further to go.

This is a good app. However there could be a few enhancements. First you should be able to see what shows have idential names if they are not renamed properly. Also the way it is renamed like "%w - S%SE%E - %t" is not very user friendly.
