Ionic form select ion-list?



I’m looking for some feedback of an implementation of an alternative form select approach - usually ionic do:

<label class="item item-input item-stacked-label item-select">
<span class="input-label"></span>
<select name="favoriteGenre" ng-model="user.favoriteGenre"

lets say we want a ionic item list for the select instead of the native pop up - I have created a plnkr based on a menu demo :

(choose your favorite music genre to see the demo in action)

  • is there simpler solutions around the ionic forum / demos etc that i perhaps have over looked ?

  • suggestions for more generic solution(s) ?

  • is there a simple way to get the back arrow to animate into the menu icon etc ?
