By default i2CSMobile comes with a tabs menu located in the top of the screen. Sometimes you might need to change the layout to be loaded as a side menu. For this customization, you need to open app.js file
In the starter module configuration, search for the $stateProvider definition for the state “app.menu”
Comment out the templateUrl line for ‘app/menu/templates/tabs.html’ and uncomment the line for templateUrl ‘app/menu/templates/side.html’.
That’s it folks!
For further modifications you might need to alter the template for side menu (i.e., in case of changing menu items or icons) which is located at ‘app/menu/templates/side.html’
