is it ok to put the side nav menu on application for the iOS? Because I can't find it on iOS guideline design.

  • Just because it isn't in the guidelines doesn't mean it can't/shouldn't be done.

It's not in the guidelines, but it's okay to include in your app -- various other apps (some examples here) include it too.

That said, there are lots of articles that argue against hamburger buttons in general -- I'd recommend reading those. The general argument goes that you should be able to fit your main top-level navigation items in a tab bar, and if you can't, maybe your app is trying to do too much at once.

  • Tnx :) I read already those articles and AB testing aproved that hamburger button was less clickable than menu one.

No, at least not if you want to listen to apple.
