    Is there a way to turn off the display with an app or shortcut on the home screen instead of using the button on the side of the phone?

    Just a pain to hold the phone to switch off the screen. I would prefer it on top somewere.

    Screen Off And Lock works well too. Ive set up a shortcut to my home button for it using Nova so if im on my main home screen, home button turns the screen off but it works well as just a widget too :thumbup:
