McDonald's has just released a new mobile ordering app dubbed MyMacca’s. Available nationally for iPhone and Android, the free app allows customers to pre-order and pay for their meal at the press of a button. Here's how it works.

Do the new US McDonald's uniforms remind you of anything? If you answered "every dystopian sci-fi movie ever," you're correct. To me, they invoke a very Logan's Run future. But mandatory grey-on-grey with a dash of black is pretty much universally recognised as the standard uniform for bleakest of futures.
Ronald McDonald has had enough of Donald Trump's bullshit, and he's taken to McDonald's official corporate Twitter account to let him hear it. What finally tipped Ron over the edge?
Was it Trump's second failed attempt at a Muslim ban, his proposed 31 per cent cut to the Environmental Protection Agency, or maybe his obviously ludicrous Obama wiretapping claim? Who knows. The tweet has already been deleted, but not before whoever was running the account pinned it to the profile.
You don't go to a fast food restaurant expecting a healthy meal, but you generally don't expect potentially carcinogenic compounds, either. It turns out that a third of the time, that's what you're getting, and not in the food, but in the wrapper. Scientists aren't sure how concerning this new health revelation is just yet, but it appears that even fast food wrappers can be bad for you.
Burger fans recognise the power of the special sauce, whipping up their own custom batches to recreate the savoury, delectable bite they know and love from their favourite burger chains. Usually, those sloppy creations mirror thousand island dressing: tomato sauce and mayonnaise, tomato sauce, relish and mayonnaise, tomato sauce, relish, mustard and mayonnaise, et cetera. Except here's the thing: there's no tomato sauce in the most common burger au jus, the McDonald's Big Mac Sauce.
McDonald's in the US will no longer be shipping fitness trackers with its Happy Meals. The fast-food giant is discontinuing the cheap step-counters it was set to include in kid's meals because the plastic bands are giving children rashes.
You have to be really, really careful when you run a creative competition on the internet, especially one where customers have access to your assets. Sadly, McDonald's New Zealand was taught this lesson only recently, with its create-a-burger campaign quietly shut down after being overrun with, well, tasteless jokes.
Pokemon GO — the game that's sent Nintendo's value soaring past Sony — is finally launching in Japan tomorrow, according to a new report from TechCrunch. And as Gizmodo first reported and TechCrunch now confirms as well, it's also where Niantic will debut "sponsored locations", starting with McDonald's.
Several Redditors discovered decompiled code in the Android and iOS versions of Pokemon GO earlier this week that indicated a potential sponsorship deal with global burger chain McDonald's. Now a well-placed source has confirmed with Gizmodo that the sponsorship is moving forward, and is set to launch in one country in Asia.
In the wake of its tremendous popularity, everyone is wondering how Pokemon GO intends to make money. In addition to in-app purchases, Niantic chief John Hanke has said that the game intends to create "sponsored locations", as they did with their earlier game Ingress. And a few enterprising Redditors apparently figured out who the company's first customer will be.
