    Hi... I'm looking for a widget app that will turn my screen off with a single press (same function as tapping the hardware power button). I had one of these for my jailbroken iPhone and I liked it because it saves a lot of wear and tear on your hardware button.

    Anyway, if anyone can give me the name of an app that does this, I appreciate your help.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply. I have been looking over the market and can't find one... but it would be great if somebody could develop it. It's very handy.

    The Screen Off App for Android is an icon that you can tap from your homescreen to quickly turn off your screen. This lets you lock your screen without pressing your power button.

    You can check out the Screen Off App for Android in the Android Marketplace by tapping here from your Android Phone, searching for "screen off" in the Android Marketplace, or using the QRCode below with the Barcode Reader app.



    The Android operating system does not let developers make your phone immediately go to sleep like your power button can; however, this application does the next best thing and makes sure that your phone goes to sleep as quickly as possible and that you do not accidentally press anything on your screen while your phone is going to sleep.

    You should not notice any changes your current power settings (brightness, screen timeout, etc.) when you open your phone again; you will be on the lock screen just as if you had pressed the power button!

    If you have any questions, issues, or requests, please reply to this thread, leave comments on my blog, or email me at konreu@gmail.com.
