    This doesn't seem to work for me, when it's enabled I just get the pull tab to the left of the screen?

    yup so pull it and select any app and drop it on the right side then select another app and drop it, it will come as split screen.

    Sorry, I ment I didn't seem to have the option to long press the back button, to open up the split screen icons, but I've figured it out now :)
