Not able to access sidemenu help

I built the project using

ionic start name sidemenu

It was working fine when I test it on my browser. When I deployed my application to my device everything is working fine except the swipe functionality to access the sidemenu .I am not able to access the sidemenu by swipping from left to right. Is there a fix to it ? or is this the way it supposed to be?
