Does the use of “Hue Disco”-apps reduce the lifespan of the bulbs?

Yesterday I bought one of these “Disco”-apps, it’s amazing how well synced it is to the music. It get’s especially interesting with more than 3 bulbs.

But however I asked myself if it would be a bad idea in any way to use one of these apps. I read on the box of the Hue-bulbs, that they can be turned off 50k times during their lifespan. These Apps create a flashing and causing a turn-on/turn-off-situation this multiple times per second (depending on the speed of the song).

Does anyone have an idea if this could be bad for the bulbs’ lifespan if you do something like this in a weekly or daily fashion?
