Read with Panels on iOS


Panels app allows you to connect with any OPDS compatible server. With Panels you will be able to to remotely download or stream your comics using your iPhone or iPad. With Panels, users can conveniently navigate through their entire Komga library and keep track of their reading progress.


Please note that Panels OPDS support requires either a Panels+ subscription or Panels in-app purchase.

Adding your Komga server to Panels

An OPDS feed is added to Panels as an importing service. From that point, it can be used either as a new library or just to download titles to your own device library.

To add a new OPDS feed, open Panels and go to Library -> Connect Service -> OPDS.

You'll be taken to the OPDS configuration screen. Give any name to your server, then enter your server address, username, and password. Tap on Apply.

Your Komga server should now appear both as a new library and as a new Import Service. Let's explore both options.

Komga as Import Service

You can use this method if you plan to use your Komga server mainly to import (download) comics into your device.

To add content to your library, you can follow either of these 2 flows:

  1. From he content screen, tap your server, navigate and select the files you want to import, and last select where yo place them in your device library.
  1. Navigate first to the location in your device library where you want your files to be imported. Then tap the 3 dot symbol and select "Import Files". Choose your server and find the files you want to download to your phone.

From either of the above flows above, your download should start and be visible from the "Downloads" tab.

Komga as a Library

Panels treats OPDS feeds as libraries. That means you can navigate your server library as if it was on your own device, with the benefit of keeping all files stored somewhere else. Once you find a title you want to read, you can tap to open and start reading it (stream) or you can choose to download it for offline use. Long press a title (or select many) to show all options.
