How do I launch two apps at the same time (app pairs) on the Samsung Galaxy Note8?

If you regularly use two apps at the same time, you can use the Apps edge panel to launch them together so that they show in a split screen view.

 

To use App pairs:

1 Use your finger to slide along the screen horizontally to bring up the Edge panel handle

Are there any apps I can't use as part of an app Pair?

Only apps that follow the Multi-Window format for Android Nougat can be used as part of an app pair.  You can use the same app. e.g. Samsung Internet + Samsung Internet to open to browser windows.
