This is hilarious.

I work at a McDonald’s and a customer told me about this. My only criticism is that my location’s machine is only half down. We can do shakes but no cones. If there was a way to make it that specific that would be awesome. I know it’s probably a special case with us but then people would know we at least have shakes.

I was overly thrilled to find this so hopefully would save me from going through a rediculously long line only to be told that the machine is down. So I tried it found it to be easy to use finding my Mcdonalds immediately which said my McDonald’s ice cream machine was indeed working. So I again wait in a rediculously long line keeping my attitude good with the knowledge that I would get my treat. HOWEVER!!!! Sure enough after a twenty minute wait I was told that the machine was down. I kept my calm saying “so the app that I used that said it WAS working is incorrect?” All I got back was yes. No I am sorry no nothing. I don’t think I will be visiting them again soon if ever! Sad:(

What a joke

Doesn't work as intended whatsoever. Once you open it, you will discover that it's a map centered around your current location. You won't be able to scroll anywhere to look at restaurants. The second you move your finger to tap a McDonalds, it zooms back to your location instantly. What's the point??? On top of that, ALL McDonalds have "no information". Because nobody has ever heard of this app except like 4 people in the world. And more aren't coming. (Because it doesn't even work). Deserves 1/2 of a star.

Try it now! We've fixed the map centering issue + it's sooooo good now
