        Are you kidding? That's impossible for a homescreen replacement launcher, that's not going to happen, funny how much useful ideas are left out without attention and fantasies like these get votes....

        I don't think this will be baked into the launcher itself. There are some restrictions imposed by Google. However this is easily achieved through Tasker/Secure Settings. Yes you do need an extra app but given Tasker's versatility...it's not a bad deal.

        Double tap to sleep would definetely be a great option to enable in gestures.. :) Thanks!

        It is possible using gestures and "Screen off and Lock" app, but couldn't Nova do it without third-party apps?

        You can double tap and lock the device in Nova in case you have the prime version. It's a gesture.

        I love the double tap to turn the screen off on my lg g3. Would love to see it on nova.

        You could create a task in Tasker to turn off screen, and then trigger it with the double tap gesture in settings.

        hoping this becomes possible.. really have grown accustomed to the tap on feature on my G3. sure as hell not switching to stock launcher just to be able to turn off though

        Even if it is not possible to allow a third party app to do that, is it possible to allow the app to honor the home launcher's gesture feature?. I have the LG G3, and I can double tap on the home screen to turn the screen off. It would be cool if Nova could implement a gesture setting that used the default home launcher setting.
