We've all been in the McDrive-Thru at 2am, just craving a McFlurry after a night of drinking, only to wait half an hour just to hear the dreaded words, "The ice cream machine is actually broken right now, we're sorry." Never again, thanks to a new website launched by a McDonald's fan.

24-year-old Rashiq Zahid has developed software to track McDonald's with non-functioning ice cream machines.

Zahid was playing with the McDonald's app, to find out if it would alert the user when the selected locations. He kept track of the locations with "broken" machines, and went to those locations to verify if their app was accurate, which it was.

Zahid then took to reverse engineering the app to automatically feed him the information, and 'McBroken' was born.
