Double tap to turn off screen

Would it be possible to add the option to turn off the screen when doing a double tap while staying at a homescreen? I think it requires root but i would be an amazing feature.

        Please add the feature, I have LG V30 and it will be very helpful

        Download an app called "lock" from play store. Then go to apex settings> behaviour settings> double tap. Select launch application option and click the 'lock' which is the newly downloaded app. That's it :)

        When will this be addressed? It has quite a number of votes and we have been waiting for so long.

        Please add double tap to turn screen off. I have LG G3 and there it is standard.

        +1... i installed the lock screen app mentioned below and that's nice except i like a shortcut-less home screen so the double tap (like comes with stock launcher on my new LG G4) would be nicer...

        Have a lg stylo and i cant use my fav. Launcher cause it needs double tap to lockscreen cause buttons are in back on phone please add this

        i need this feature also on my G3 and other devices that supports double tap to sleep.

        please dev add that feature on your Launcher. :D

        Could just add the feature to the double tap on desktop gesture, my Xperia z3 hasn't got the turn off function but I have double tap to wake, would be great to have it on my daily launcher.Otherwise, Solo launcher has it already.

        Important feature missing from this launcher for those who do not use the default LG launcher...
        (and most of us don't LOL)

        +1 for the option on the LG G3 !
        Buttons are at the back, so the function is necessary !

        This needed and doesn't require root.
        Only requires administrative rights, which would require a user to remove the rights to be able to remove Apex Launcher.
