    Make sure you select the ghost vacuum in the upper right corner first too.

    Do ghosts need to be floating around your town to use it?
    Or does it make ghosts appear when you drag it around your town?

    It's terrible. Much easier to pop them.

    Yup. Struggled with it this morning. Finally gave up and went back to popping. But the Ghost Zappper works, as long as ghosts are in the proximity.

    As has been said, select it in the top right corner. Works great around the Sematary's but not as easy for solo ghosts.

    OH yes i still have nightmares about whacking day, but at least the ghosts are floating and never hidden by buildings, although scouring a town light on ghosts is becoming tedious in the bigger sfs

    :thumbup:

    Yup I just tap and hold for 2 sec and then it swirls and you just zoom around without lifting your finger. :mrgreen:

    It's cool when the buildings that rewards Ghosts you click it then all those Ghost go ZOOM. Goodbye ! Just a better version of the vacuum Marge and Burns have. :twisted:

    The vacuum is "terribad"... I have a hard time getting it going myself. Might be it's easier or harder to get it started on different devices. Though once it works, it seems like a nice feature, but for me (perhaps because of my device), it's far more easy just to tap the ghosts...

    The Ghost Zapper works allright, but with such a ridiculously low range, you'd be better off without it (though it looks cool).

    Thing is I only usually see one ghost here and there, so the vacuum would be pointless for me. I have the zapper for the big groups that spawn. That's all I need.

    You know, I have never had to tap the screen first to start the vacuum.

    You have to be sure to hold your finger down on the screen in a spot where there are no buildings/interactive decorations. I think that is why so many people can't start it. I find it really easy to start.
