There’s no worse feeling than pulling into your local McDonald’s when that craving for ice cream hits and you’re hit with the dreaded “the ice cream machine is down”. App developer Raina McLeod came up with a solution. She developed an iPhone app called Ice Check that points you to the nearest working machine. The app uses real-time crowd sourced information from participating locations.
Notable quote: “I came up with the idea for the app around a year ago, after a late night Oreo McFlurry craving went unfulfilled due to the ice cream machine being down. I feel like an activist — and that’s a weird thing to say. I really do think that people should have what they want.” – Raina McLeod, Ice Check developer.
The app is not available to Android users as of yet. Download the iOS app here.
