Apps are Dying?

Two long-time Android apps that I used to use a lot bit the dust recently: Hipmunk, the airfare aggregator is just dead.  Tapingo, the skip-the-line-order-ahead app for campus dining, has been subsumed into the Borg that is Grubhub.  (Weirdly, most people around here pronounced it “tap-ingo” while I perhaps wrongly said “tap-n-go”.  Guess that’s totally academic now.)

Coincidence?  Or have we reached a new stage in the lifecycle of even established apps?
