Default Soft button screen off

I'm on android 4.3 and noticed that it no longer has a soft screen off button on my notification pull down menu. I loved this feature on my previous ROM since it saves me from using the hard home or power buttons.

I looked through google play store but was unable to find an app. I don't need it to lock but to just turn off the screen.

Any suggestions please?

How did you turn the screen back on ???

You could use something like power toggles, add the toggles that locks screen, then go to lock screen and set it to none.

That worked for me. I just tried it. Not sure if that's really what you are looking for.....

That turns off the screen, and pressing home button or power button turns screen back on.
Crazy? Some people think walking down the street muttering to yourself is crazy. I'll tell you what crazy is: Crazy is walking down the street with half a cantaloupe on your head, saying: "I'm a hamster. I'm a hamster." That's crazy.

Did you look at "Screen Off and Lock" in PlayStore? I think it had ability to add screen off in dropdown notification.
