The website works in real time to tell users if an ice cream machine is up and running or not.




McDonalds seems to be on board with the site, with the fast-food giant's VP tweeting, "Only a true @McDonalds fan would go to these lengths to help customers get our delicious ice cream."

There are many things that are synonymous with McDonald's, but a broken ice-cream machine is often near the top of the list. Seeking a solution, a software engineer set out to save customers from disappointment in their pursuit of a cold treat from the fast-food chain.McBroken, a website created by 24-year-old Rashiq Zahid, according to The Verge, aims to tell potential customers in real time if an ice-cream machine is working at a particular McDonald's or not. Each location is indicated with a colored dot. Locations with a green dot should have ice cream, while red-dot locations are reported to have an out-of-order machine.In order to figure out if a location needs a red or green dot, Zahid created a bot that tries to order a McSundae every 30 minutesa?? if the bot succeeds, the website will say the machine is working.
