Szyszka is Polish word which means Pinecone.
Why such a strange name?
Would you remember another app name like Rename Files Ultra?
But will you remember name Szyszka?
Well... probably also not, but when you hear this name, you will instantly think of this app.
I know that on Linux, which I primarily use, there is a lot of good file renamers (and even more on Windows), but I couldn't find any that would suit my needs. Available apps install a lot of dependencies, work slowly or just have a very bloated UI.
