The Magic ordering service is here to make sure you never have to open an app again if you want food, flowers or flights. The service, created by Plus Labs, Inc., is run via SMS and promises to get you anything you want so long as it's not illegal. It essentially works as a middleman between you and on-demand apps. If you want groceries, Magic will contact Instacart and if you're hungry Postmates or GrubHub will get a request.

The Magic ordering service promises 24/7 availability and ease of use. After you provide them with your billing information and address, ordering just about anything is as simple as making a request and confirming the charge (with tip included). The service is currently available across the U.S. and also accepts Bitcoin as a payment option.
