What’s New

Version 2.11.1

New in this build


• Fixed a bug that caused the readers to crop when the device is rotated.



• We have completely redesigned the readers!

• We've also redesigned the Reading Now section.

• The tap gestures to navigate to next/previous page are now configurable from settings.


• Streamed comics no longer open the reader the app can't connect with the server.

• External libraries now show an error message when it can't reach the server. Even if cached content is shown.

• We have removed the gesture to share a page in favour of the share button. Makes the app conform better to Apple's design patterns.


• External libraries sometimes showed an annoying flicker when loading additional content pages.

Where is the embedded server in the new version????

Most recent version does not have the embedded server for import any more.Why??

Correction: found back the embedded server. Previously I used Comic Rack (discontinued on iPad but still on PC). Transferring strips via embedded server works very well.
Very good reader form strips.

Developer Response ,

This bug is already fixed in the latest version. We would appreciate if you reconsider your rating. Thanks 🙏

Imho the best comics reader but there is still a lot of room for improvement

While most comics readers are focusing on the management of the library, Panels is making the reading experience above its competitors.
I often use the landscape mode to read my BDs on the iPad as they were made to be read on an A4 page. Panels makes it easy for you without having to constantly zoom and pan the page.

It still lacks some easy to add but essential features like the ability to rename a collection or to select multiple books.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. We constantly update the app bringing new features. Renaming collections is definitely something we will add very soon.
