Great app for dealing with PDFs with nonsense names when downloaded - App works on Yosemite and has been an incredible time saver. It does have trouble at times automatically recognizing the proper title (probably because the publisher metadata is incorrect), but the “PDF Viewer” displays a thumbnail preview of the file that you can click and highlight the title directly - the filename is automatically filled to match what was highlighted!

Works for me - I have used this for the past few years and it works about 90% of the time for me. This is well about the expected threshold to bulk rename many pdf journal articles. I would buy this again.
