There’s now an app to see if the McDonald’s ice cream machine is working

When’s the last time you had ice cream at McDonald’s? Forever ago, right? And it’s not because you haven’t craved some of that frosty goodness, it’s just that the damn machine is always down. But now, there’s a way to check before heading to the Golden Arches.

The iPhone app is called “Ice Check,” and it allows users to report on the status of McDonald’s ice cream machines.

“Ice Check is the app for McDonald’s ice cream lovers who are sick and tired of hearing the “machine is down!” Our real-time updates will save you time and energy, leading you to ice cream machines that actually work BEFORE you get on line to order,” the app’s description says.

The app is free and available in the App Store.
