Too many times a late night craving for a McFlurry or milkshake goes unfulfilled because the staff says that the bloody ice cream machine isn’t working. Obviously, they haven’t tried much to fix it or they just don’t want to clean it late at night, but I didn’t drive all this to be told by some acne riddled highschooler that I’m not going to get what I want.
Well, it looks like the thousands of memes and general public outcry has finally started to pay off. Introducing Ice Check, a nifty little app that allows you to check whether a specific McDonald’s ice cream machine is working before you even get there.
The app – which is available on Apple IOS devices – will give you the ability to search your nearest Maccas, so you don’t hear the disappointing news when you rock up with an empty stomach and ice cream on your mind.
All this happens in real time, and if you happen to come across a McDonald’s that is lacking in the ice cream department, the app allows you to publicly share that it isn’t working to the rest of the userbase.
“I came up with the idea for the app around a year ago, after a late night Oreo McFlurry craving went unfulfilled due to the ice cream machine being down,” Raina McLeod, the app’s creator, told BuzzFeed.
What an absolute bloody game changer, sign me up.
