How To Double-Tap To Turn Off Your Android Screen!

We normally turn on/off our phone’s screen several times on a daily basis.  To turn off the screen, we normally need to tap on the power button, but how about giving some rest to that button?  Instead of of pressing power button, how about double tapping on your phone’s main screen to do the same?
