Except those who are coming from Windows, which is a larger userbase
than those coming from the iPhone or Android markets, are used to the
Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel.
Also, keeping it "Add/Remove" shows the user can do an action to the
system. When the user thinks of a place, generally it will be a
folder/directory or a site on the web (which is where the "place" is
coming into play on the iPhone/Andriod).
