    I find it useful to lock the phone without pressing the physical power button, just like you can double tap the screen to wake it, but the OS doesn't have this feature (there was supposed to be a double tap to lock in 8.1 but so far it's not there).
    So that leaves us with third party apps, and there are plenty of touch to lock apps in the store, some paid some free, but I noticed all of which drain battery or don't work smooth. At first I thought it's about the permissions but recently found a free app that asks for no permission at all, and still I find that it either drains battery, or shows black screen from time to time instead of the lockscreen when waking up.
    I thought a lockscreen command app could be simple but I guess these apps has to do a trick to bypass the OS and go there, and that is where something goes wrong.
    Anyone else noticed it or has a solution for this?
