There are two possible reasons. First, an app only stays in the store as long as the developer pays their $99/year developer fee. Second, Apple releases new APIs and guidelines with each annual update of iOS, apps must be kept up to date with these or they will be removed. IBCNU has not been updated in a long time.

I use Ham Tracker, which does a wonderful job of sending position to the APRS IS, and then I use findU and aprs.fi for the display.

When I retire in a couple months I plan to use some of my free time to get push messaging working via findU - you will get notified with the message pushed to your phone as soon as it hits findU via the APRS IS. It is actually pretty easy to do the way Apple implements push messaging, the hard part is writing a user registration system that won't require excessive intervention to maintain.
