    Hey guys! Apps I'm using to control volume, lock screen and reboot. So avoid damage to the buttons.
    My question is: Is there an App right time to turn off the phone from start screen?
    Thank you.

    Yes it is. "Quick Tiles and Quick Controls" will do that.

    I downloaded both previously but none gets off the phone.
    Just block the screen. Thanks anyway.

    if Lumia, enable double tap to wake, and just set the screen to a really short timeout period. no need to turn off the screen. Personally, I wouldn't be so worried about the buttons, they seem quite robust.

    Perhaps I expressed myself bad way (Sorry for my English)
    I do not want to turn off the screen. I want to turn off the phone.

    I'm confused, didn't you want to turn off phone. Like you do with your power button? I have both these apps installed and they do just that. How are you missing it?

    Exactly.
    I want to turn off the phone for long time.
    All Apps reboots the system immediately.
    Quick Tiles & Quick Controls system only reboot, replace the power button halfway.

    Cesar these everywhere LOL
    I have installed Reboot Now, it's perfect. But do not turn off the phone for a long time.

    That's incorrect. They have "turn off" and "reboot" tiles inside the application. The tile with the "lock" symbol is the "power button" tile.

    If this doesn't help, sorry but I don't understand what you're asking. Unless you're talking about "shutting down"? Like in, nothing is running? If so, there isn't an app for that yet. If you find one let me know too.

    Why not just use the button? It will probably outlast other parts of your phone anyway.

    Maybe because the power button is damaged?

    NokiAngel, no, There isn't an app can turn off de phone only.

    Thank you guys!

    Conclusion: Until today then we do not have an App can turn off the phone only.

    Cause: The power button starts to fail and I want to avoid using the lowest possible

    I hope a system application or any application that can pin to start in future updates. As a resource if they fail some of the buttons.

    If you find an application let me know in this post.
    Thank you and sorry for my English.
