I use Freshdesk as Support Portal for all of my iOS apps. They have a nice framework that you can integrate with your apps to provide a Knowledge Base to your users from inside the app on top of the ability to open a ticket (and automatically include debug information).

The framework though needs an UIViewController to work. I wanted to present it from a SKScene.

All SKScenes are inside the main ViewController of the app (the default name for it is GameViewController). You just create a reference to it in your scene and use that to present the support panel.

From GameViewController, right before presenting your SKScene:

let scene = MainMenu()
let skView = self.view as! SKView

        scene.scaleMode = .ResizeFill
        scene.anchorPoint = CGPointMake(0.5, 0.5)
        scene.size = skView.bounds.size
        scene.viewController = self//passing a reference of the controller to your scene

From you MainMenu, in touchesBegan:withEvent:

if == "support" {
