It's happened one too many times—you go to McDonald's for a sweet craving only to find out that their ice cream machine is broken!

Seemingly, this has been an issue for a while now and trust me, you're not alone.

It's a no-brainer that the fast-food chain is known for its yummy french fries and Big Mac, but they're also known for having ice cream machines that don't work. It's frustrating AF!

Luckily, there's now a way to find out if the ice cream machine at your nearby McD is working or not—there's an APP for that.

The Ice Check App, which was released May 2016 for iOS devices only, lets you know before you go.

This app was created for everyone who is sick and tired of getting their hearts broken by a McDonald's employee. According to the Apple Store description:

"Finally, a way to find WORKING McDonald’s ice cream machines — right from your phone! Ice Check will tell you if the machines are UP or DOWN in real-time, using crowd-sourced info and input from participating locations. No login required. Just let the GPS locator lead you to the nearest cone, sundae, milkshake, or McFlurry!"

You see, heroes without capes do exist!
