    It seems that if I want to have two apps that are not already in my dock side-by-side I have to do some gymnastics to do it. The only way I can figure out is to open the first app so that it appears in the recent apps in my dock, then go back to the home screen, open the second app, the drag the first app up from the dock. Is there a better way to do this?

    Open the first app. Go back to home and "pick up" the second one with a long press and go straight to muktitasking with another finger on the same hand, or with your other hand, and drop it straight on the first one

    Thanks for the replies.
    Yeah, I discovered this about 10 minutes before I saw your response.
    And this video actually has an extra step, since he opens the Files app first. All installed apps have a "space" (not sure if it's actually called that), even if they've never been opened. So you can actually start right from the home screen.

    I have a question I am hoping you can answer. If I have an app open in hover mode that I also have in my dock, how do I make it so that when I press it in my dock, it goes to full screen, instead of to the app on which it hovers? E.g, iMessage hovering over google inbox.

    Actually, you don’t have open the multitasking pane. Just longpress an app from the home screen, drag it over and hold it over another app that’s on the Home screen, and the underneath app will flash and then open, and then you can drag the first app
    To the side you want. Both apps open side by side.
