about NameChanger and Filewrangler Feb 2012

With Name Changer you get for free....
Fewer complicated options
Faster speeds
Easy to use interface

I used to be a big fan of Name Mangler, and wasn't too displeased with File Wrangler but when I upgraded to Snow Leopard both these developers tried to force me to buy/pay again for software they continue to provide for free to people using 10.5. We shouldn't be penalized.

Thank you Name Changer
