Use App Pairing on Galaxy Note8

Want to read today's headlines while you watch a tutorial? Try App Pairing. It lets you open two of your favorite apps in split screen view in a jiffy. You can even pick your favorite combination of apps to open in split screen view and staple them together for easy access in Apps Edge. Because two apps are better than one.

• The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
• If this is the first time using enhanced edge features, you will have to complete the tutorial.

Create App Pairing

Walk your grandma through steps to fix her computer while you are receiving the instructions from a tech support site. Create an app pair and skip all the back and forth opening and minimizing. Follow these instructions to get started:

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

  2. Touch Add Shorcut.


  4. Select two apps from the list of apps available. The first app will appear at the top and the second app will appear at the bottom when opened in split screen view.

    Not all apps support split screen view.

  5. Touch DONE.

  6. Touch Home.

  7. To use the App Pairing you've just created, open Apps Edge by swiping the Edge panel to the left.

  8. Touch the App Pair.

  9. Start multi-tasking all you want!

Remove Shortcuts from Apps Edge

If you went a little crazy with all the pairing and need space to create more combinations, you can remove the shortcuts that you don’t use much. Regular app shortcuts can be removed the same way from Apps Edge.

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

  2. Touch and hold the shortcut you want to remove.

  3. Drag the shortcut to Remove.

Useful App Pairing Combo

Can’t think of any useful app pairing combinations? Here are some combinations to get those creative juices flowing:

  • Play Music + Maps: Play your jam while taking on an adventure.

  • Email + Phone: Never miss an email because of a long phone call.

  • Camera + Gallery: Capture and manage your photos all at once.

  • Facebook + Internet: Check your Facebook while browsing the internet.

  • Contacts + Message: Network your friends and become a cupid.

  • S Note + Drive: Make a note and save it to your Google Drive.
