Lots of apps -- starting with Facebook and Path, and many more since -- use a sidebar menu. (Often known as a "basement," often opened by a "hamburger" button.)

Though it isn't that difficult to do, it's still up to each developer to figure it out and implement it.

At this point it's become a de facto standard, but it's implemented unevenly. Direct support in UIKit would help developers -- and would help users by defining and ensuring standard behavior.
