It works on both iPhone and iPad, is really easy to setup and lot of options are available.
Influenced by the UI of the Twitter and Soundcloud iPad apps, Factis Research designed a new navigation concept for their product, Checkpad MED. FRLayeredNavigationController is the foundation for this new UI. They also have a blog post up that describes how the component works.
