Double Tap to Wake feature brought back to unrooted Nexus 6

A few weeks back, we talked about an app that brought back the “double tap to wake” feature to the Google Nexus 6 phone, a feature that was planned to be active on the phone but was nixed by Motorola and Google at the last minute. Said app only worked on rooted Nexus 6 phones, so it still presented quite a challenge for those who don’t like/want to root their phones.
