App pairing

App Pairing lets you open two of your favorite apps in split screen view in a jiffy. Create your favorite combination of apps to open in split screen view and staple them together for easy access in Apps Edge.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.

Create App Pairing

1. From any screen, open APPS EDGE by swiping the Edge panel to the left.
