It is also working for Android usérs ! The member who found this tip is playing on Android. Try to open your task bar (whatever the name is for android) while playing SFP and you should see it.

I usually do this on multi-level house for several Sims at the same time, but I do the close and re-open app within 5 secs...

And through this I have encounter the 'invisible' Sim glitch, whereby the game was not able to 'draw' the Sim on the screen... it was funny to have an 'invisible' Sim walking and doing task in the house, but it only last for less than 1 minute.

When you swipe up with five fingers on your screen, you open the "multitask bar" (I don't know if it's the correct name...) and you can see all the apps you used previously.
And when you do that, you simply tap on your screen on the top (because the bar is at the bottom) on the SFP, and you come back to your game, and your sims go directly where you have send them (I'm sorry.... I hope it's clear....)

EDIT : I'm so slow to write.... You have already answered your own question ! :lol:
Oh wow I'm going to try this! Sometimes they take the longest way around the house it seems.

on ipad if you swipe four fingers to the right, the game sorta vibrates and does the same thing as swiping up without having it close small, and tapping the small icon...it freezes for a split second

I see it now. I'd turned that off because of a drawing app I use. But I'm gaming not drawing right now so I'll use that. Thank you!

Swiping with one finger from the very bottom edge on my iPad also works for me, and seems quicker. This is the gesture that opens up the gray bar with the volume, brightness, music controls, etc. I think usually in the game I need to try swiping twice to pull up the bar, but it does the same thing as the other method mentioned earlier. To close that "control bar" just tap right above the edge of the bar, or tap inside the game.

At the bottom of the screen is the gray arrow from the first swipe attempt. Swipe up again and it brings up the full bar.
