I think what they do is launch an updater app just before quiting themselves. The updater stack replaces the app stack, launches the app stack then quits itself. Only way I would know how to do it.

One I can think of so far is when the user runs the app offline, so that any approach to the server will fail - not sure how to detect that. Also, so far I am vague about how a running standalone can replace itself - something do do with file names, perhaps?
