Need your McFlurry fix but are afraid of waiting in the drive-thru only to find out the “machine is down”? There’s an app for that.
Even though McDonald’s ice cream machines are always down, just like that cab drivers credit card machine is “not working”, at least you can know ahead of time and save yourself the disappointment.
Ice Check is the app for McDonald’s ice cream lovers who are sick and tired of hearing the “machine is down!” Their 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.
“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,” creator Raina McLeod told BuzzFeed.
At McDonald’s but not craving ice cream? Ask about it anyway! Ice Check’s community-based system relies on your contributions to the database: so if you see something, say something!
What else does the Ice Check app do? It has real-time updates from McDonald’s locations across the world and if their “machine is down”, it updates the status of ice cream machines near you, it has turn-by-turn directions to each McDonald’s location (like you don’t fucking know where to find a McDonald’s), and you can easily share your results with friends (because all your friends really fucking care about you and your McFlurry).
