App helps McDonald's customers find a working ice cream machine

The pain of ordering a McFlurry at McDonald's only to be told the ice cream is machine is broken may finally be over. One woman has been irritated to the point of developing a mobile application that would inform ice cream seekers of whether a nearby McDonald's machine works.

The Ice Check app, available for Apple iOS devices, allows users to search for their nearest McDonald's and the app will then reveal whether that location's ice cream machine is now functioning. The app also lets you see if a location has a working ice cream machine.

Unfortunately though, UK McFlurry fans are going to have to wait a little longer before they can completely avoid an ice cream anti-climax.

For now, the app is only available in the US, but will have locations in Canada and the U.K.in the next update.

However McLeod has confirmed that restaurants in the United Kingdom and Canada will be added "in the next update", she told Metro.
