How about an app to help you find the location that serve this sandwich
The McRib will return to select McDonald's until December 31
The sandwich can only be found in half of the chain's restaurants across the country this year, down from thr 75 percent that carried it in 2014.
That's where the McRib Finder comes in.
The app, which is only available on iPhone's iOS 10 iMessage, utilizes the phone's GPS location to help people find the closest McDonald's selling the McRib.
It then allows users to send that address to a friend, with the message: 'The McRib is back...Let's meet up!'
The McRib Finder will no doubt benefit McDonald's customers who in the past have only been able to rely on crowd sourced data or luck to find the elusive sandwich.
But the app comes with some issues of its own, a main one being that it only pinpoints locations based on where the user is at that very moment.
This makes it difficult for McRib lovers to check and see if the sandwich will be near them at a different location later that day.
One can zoom out from their location and see which restaurants across the country are offering the McRib, but the iMessage screen makes the map hard to read and navigate.
