Taken from Apple: "A navigation controller manages a stack of view controllers to provide a drill-down interface for hierarchical content." https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/WindowsViews/Conceptual/ViewControllerCatalog/Chapters/NavigationControllers.html

It all depends what you want your app to achieve but if you're going to be moving between views it adds a lot of inbuilt functionality like a back button, a place for a title in the header, easy addition of buttons etc
