CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — Has this ever happened to you... You head to McDonalds for a McFlurry but the ice cream machine is not working.

Well, a new online tool has been created to make sure that never happens again.

The site is called "McBroken" and lets you know if the ice cream machine at your favorite McDonald's fast-food restaurant is working or not.

It's the brain child of a 24-year-old software engineer named Rashiq Zahid.
The site checks the McDonald's app every 30 minutes to see if the ice cream options are available to order.

If they are, the McDonald's location on the appgets a green light which means you can order your favorite milkshake.
