A person named Rashiq Zahid built a web app called McBroken, telling people whether the ice cream machine at their local McDonald’s is working.

He built the web app by reverse-engineering the McDonald’s API and his app is placing an order worth $18,752 every minute.

Many McDonald’s consumers have been frustrated when they craved for ice cream and only find out that the ice cream machine is broker.

Rashiq understands this very well and hopes to put a smile to heart-broken people who couldn’t get their ice cream. The app also shows what percentage of machines are currently broken in different cities, like New York, San Francisco and Chicago.
