Genius!! New App Tells You If Your Local McDonald's Ice Cream Machine Is Broken


Rashiq Zahid created a new site called McBroken.com which provides a map of McDonald's locations and little dots that indicate if their ice cream machines are working or not. Though some others have tried to tackle this issue in the past, this one seems to be the most comprehensive so far. Zahid is clearly a very smart person who has a very fancy explanation for how it works that he explains in his own words below:

McBroken.com tries to order an ice cream sundae online every 30 minutes and changes the color of the dot based on whether it's marked as available or unavailable. Now, obviously success can vary if say, the location forgets to update its online ordering portal, but it's about as reliable a system we have right now!


"I just made it for fun," Zahid told The Verge: "But people were like ‘Wow, this is the best thing I’ve seen this entire week.'"

And it seems like McDonald's loves it too, as David Tovar, McDonald’s VP of US Communications, recently tweeted about it positively.

Hopefully, this forces McDonalds to call in the repair guys once and for all!
