Available now in San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, the app delivers from stores like Whole Foods, Costco, and Safeway, and uses crowdsourced "Personal Shoppers" instead of costly warehouses and trucks. Not a bad way to get a steak and a six-pack brought straight to your door. And if you're looking for recipes, InstaCart supports Yummly's recipe database, so you'll never be hard up for kitchen ideas.
