A cool touch-enabled navigation concept to create a corner menu that slides out with a subtle transition effect, depended on jQuery, touchSwipe, CSS3 transitions & transforms.

How to use it:

1. Load the Ionicons for navigation icons.

<link href="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/ionicons/1.5.2/css/ionicons.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

2. Create a corner menu.

<nav id="corner_toggle" class="top-left">
  <div id="corner_toggle_container">
    ...
  </div>
</nav>

3. Style the corner menu and place it in the upper left corner of the page.

nav#corner_toggle {
  -webkit-transition: all 0.15s ease-in-out;
  -moz-transition: all 0.15s ease-in-out;
  -ms-transition: all 0.15s ease-in-out;
  -o-transition: all 0.15s ease-in-out;
  z-index: 1000;
  position: fixed;
  background-color: #2e282a;
  height: 500px;
  width: 2000px;
  top: -375px;
}

nav#corner_toggle.top-left {
  left: -1125px;
  -webkit-transform: rotate(-45deg);
  -ms-transform: rotate(-45deg);
  transform: rotate(-45deg);
}

#corner_toggle_container {
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
}

.corner_toggle_ctrl {
  margin: 0 auto;
  text-align: center;
  position: fixed;
  width: 100%;
  color: #cd5334;
  font-size: 30px;
}

.corner_toggle_ctrl:hover { color: #cd5334; }

.corner_toggle_ctrl.top {
  bottom: 0;
  padding-bottom: 10px;
}

.corner_toggle_ctrl i { cursor: pointer; }

4. Load the latest version of jQuery library.

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

5. Load the jQuery touchSwipe plugin to enable touch swipe support.

<script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery.touchswipe/1.6.4/jquery.touchSwipe.js"></script>

6. The core JavaScript to enable the corner menu.

$(document).ready(function () {
  var corner_toggle = $('#corner_toggle'), corner_toggle_container = $('#corner_toggle #corner_toggle_container'), corner_class = corner_toggle.attr('class'), vert_pos = 'top', horiz_pos, init_vert = '-375', init_horiz = '-1125', increased_vert = parseInt(init_vert) * 0.5, increased_horiz = parseInt(init_horiz) * 0.83;
  switch (corner_class) {
  case 'top-left':
    horiz_pos = 'left';
    break;
  case 'top-right':
    horiz_pos = 'right';
    break;
  }
  $('button#top_left_btn').click(function () {
    if (corner_toggle.hasClass('top-left')) {
      return false;
    } else {
      corner_toggle.fadeOut('fast', function () {
        $(this).delay(250).fadeIn('fast');
        corner_toggle.css('top', '');
        corner_toggle.css('right', '');
        corner_toggle.removeClass('top-right');
        corner_toggle.addClass('top-left');
        horiz_pos = 'left';
      });
    }
  });
  corner_toggle_container.click(function () {
    if (corner_toggle.hasClass('active')) {
      toggleCornerMenu('in');
    } else {
      toggleCornerMenu('out');
    }
  });
  corner_toggle.swipe({
    tap: function (event, target) {
      if ($(this).hasClass('active')) {
        toggleCornerMenu('in');
      } else {
        toggleCornerMenu('out');
      }
    },
    swipe: function (event, direction, distance, duration, fingerCount) {
      switch (corner_class) {
      case 'top-left':
        if (direction == 'down' || direction == 'right' && !$(this).hasClass('active')) {
          toggleCornerMenu('out');
        }
        if (direction == 'up' || direction == 'left' && $(this).hasClass('active')) {
          toggleCornerMenu('in');
        }
        break;
      case 'top-right':
        if (direction == 'down' || direction == 'left' && !$(this).hasClass('active')) {
          toggleCornerMenu('out');
        }
        if (direction == 'up' || direction == 'right' && $(this).hasClass('active')) {
          toggleCornerMenu('in');
        }
        break;
      }
    },
    threshold: 0
  });
  var toggleCornerMenu = function (action) {
    switch (action) {
    case 'in':
      corner_toggle.css(vert_pos, init_vert + 'px');
      corner_toggle.css(horiz_pos, init_horiz + 'px');
      corner_toggle.toggleClass('active');
      break;
    case 'out':
      corner_toggle.css(vert_pos, increased_vert + 'px');
      corner_toggle.css(horiz_pos, increased_horiz + 'px');
      corner_toggle.toggleClass('active');
      break;
    }
  };
});
