There are two options for adding apps to your site.

Option 1

We can directly click the App icon or Tile to add the particular app into our site, then click the Document Library.

Both the preceding options redirects to the Document creation page, fill in the input and add the library.

If we click the "Advanced Options", notice that the Document Library "List Template ID=101" as a query string is in the page URL. Microsoft may call it an App but still it internally maintains the basic structure.

The same page in SharePoint 2010 looks like in the following page, it's based on Silverlight.

If we want to delete the Document Library then simply click the top-right "More info" link or click the App icon or Tile, it'll open a popup with the "Remove" option.
