Looking for a functional ice cream machine at McDonald's? There's an app for that.


It's an age old question: why is McDonald's ice cream machine always broken? That's probably not the case, but it sure feels that way. The jokes have been on social media for years as people wonder why McDonald's locations nationwide constantly have broken ice cream machines.

In an effort to save you from having to go from restaurant to restaurant to get your frozen fix, a woman in Washington, D.C., has made your search as easy as opening an app.

Raina McLeod's "Ice Check" app allows people to to report whether the ice cream machine at their local Mickey D's is working. The thought came to McLeod after her own dream of eating a McFlurry was dashed by a broken machine. Now, she's giving the power -- and the ice cream -- back to the people.

"I don’t want us to have to work, but they’re not telling us," McLeod told DC Inno. "I feel like an activist — and that’s a weird thing to say. I really do think that people should have what they want."
