As switching off the screen can be a pain sometimes i created this little app to make life more easy :)

doubleHome is the easiest and fastest way to turn off the screen of your phone!

Turn off the screen from anywhere! Just double tap your home button to turn off the screen.
This app is designed for the latest android versions and supports fingerprint unlocking.

Works with software and hardware buttons and any launcher!

Enjoy!

FEATURES:
  • Double tap the home button to turn off the screen
  • Different screen off methods including ROOT
  • Edge Glow effect
  • More to come soon

Galaxy S7 users will have to disable double tap to launch camera to get this working i guess.

If you have any ideas how to improve or new features just tell me :)
Among the hardware keys the Power is most effected to be damaged with the passage of time. Thanks for a good application...
Here is my suggestion...
With the screen off feature it get more attraction if you add Power menu or Shut Down menu by pressing three times consecutively the Home button.
Screen shot attached.

Pretty useful, thanks for share with XDA community.
I'm using root method (Nexus 6p, fingerprint) and I feel that the unlock became slower - I feel the vibration that means the fingerprint was recognized and the screen still black for a second. Is it expected?

Damn the timeout method doesn't work on my LG g6.

I've tried other apps and no matter how long I set the timer, it doesn't work.

It probably has something to do with the always on display.

Hopefully this thing gets rooted so I can use other methods soon.

Still, great work, it's awesome!

    Don't work on s7 edge

    Maybe you need to disable double home to launch camera in camera settings before.

    Awesome work, it works fine on a s8 port, but I'd like it to add double-tap anywhere on the launcher, which is not limited to the virtual buttons
