Usually, the app developer has chosen not to expend the effort to support
that app beyond the last iOS version it ran on, or they are no longer in
business, and the app has been left to die on the vine.
One such app is MotionXGPS Drive, the developer has chosen to no longer
support it. However, they still support and update MotionXGPS. Other apps
have been slow to update to meet the requirements of the latest iOS.
Another example was Adobe PS Touch, which is no longer supported, or
available, and has been replaced with PS Mix, and PS Fix.
