Blank app with tab-like back and forth navigation for lists?


I have created an Ionic blank starter app and have implemented a list view on my main view. When a user clicks a list item I would like user interaction to be the same as when you have a tab app and it advances the user to a nested page with a “back” button in the top left hand corner.

I was thinking about recreating my app with a tab starter project and hiding the tab bar at the bottom with CSS, but I thought there is probably a better way to go about doing it that is less hacky.

How can I go about implementing this navigation structure within my blank app?
