WEBP Support

Hey Panels-Team, you have built an amazing app and i absolutley love it. I would love it even more if this app had a support for WEBP. Is there anything planed?

Hi @Brendeltier

WebP support is already in our roadmap and we’d live to implement it soon. I can’t give you a time frame but it’s definitely on the top of our list.

Not sure if it makes a difference, but I wanted to let you know that I’m also looking forward to the webp implementation.

Hi everyone :wave:

You might want to know that the next release will have webp support :tada:

If you’re not in the Beta channel, you might want to give it a try and give us feedback about the webp support. If you haven’t joined, you can do it by opening the following link on your iPhone/iPad.

Decoding a webp image takes a bit longer than a jpeg/png, so page loading is slightly slower. But we’ve implemented a cache so we only have to decode pages once per session. Also, all Panels readers pre-load pages in the background, so you shouldn’t notice anything different unless you jump to another page (not adjacent) right when you open the comic.

Please, give it a go and let us know your thoughts.
