We have all been there. You go through the drive thru at McDonald's only to find out that the ice cream machine is down, and the restaurant is unable to sell milkshakes and cones. 

What if you could find out before driving to the restaurant if the ice cream machine is working? There is an app for it. 

The app is called "Ice Check," and the app is available for iPhone users. 

The application relies on users self-reporting on the status of ice cream machines. 

"Ice Check is the app for McDonald’s ice cream lovers who are sick and tired of hearing the “machine is down!” Our 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," the app's description says. 

The app is free and available in the App Store.
