[prMac.com] Woking, United Kingdom – EchoMist today is pleased to announced the imminent release of FileTools, a new powerful and flexible new file wrangling application for OS X. FileTools will be available on the Mac App Store from 30/11/15.
FileTools aims to address problems encountered by anyone who has to manage large numbers of files with powerful but simple to use solutions. Among its many tools is the ability to store and share (across the network) locations of files and folders. Rather than describing a network location to a colleague, FileTools allows you to send the location directly to their computer so that they can access it with a single click (and keep it for use later).
The batch renamer can be programmed using a simple drag and drop paradigm and allows you to preview results before you commit. A wide selection of modules allow the user to use a variety of text processing and metadata based steps in their workflows. A watch directory system with a similar drag and drop design can perform a variety of tasks and is able to make decisions based on a variety of criteria so that different types of file, or files with different metadata tags can be handled differently.
