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.
