How to permanently fix Xcode 5 SpringBoard failed to launch application with error: -3 [duplicate]

Launching apps from Xcode 5 to the iOS simulator (multiple OS versions) fails with SpringBoard failed to launch application with error: -3. I can get around the problem by ‘turning it off and back on again’ (quitting the simulator and relaunching, uninstalling and redeploying the app, etc.), but it seems to come back again later and in other projects.

Can someone help me understand what the real problem here is and if there is a permanent fix?

Answer

I don’t know why, but on my end deleting the app from simulator solved this.
