Have you ever had the issue of going to McDonald's and being told the ice cream machine is down?  Someone had the great idea to make an app that saves you that disappointment.

According to the story from Time, there is a new app that can tell you if the McDonald's location that is nearest to you has their soft serve ice cream machine working.

Depending on where you are this could save you time and gas.  Use the app and you could go to another location where the machine is working.

The app called, "Ice Check" allows you to check the location near you in real time to see if their machine is working.  You can also report outages for other users.

Unfortunately as of now the app is only available for Apple iOS devices.
