Digital finger painting

Brushes is an iphone app that allows you to paint using up to 4 layers, an advanced colour picker and several realistic brushes. So what does this mean for art. is it progressing so far in to digitisation that an iphone/laptop is going to be the new piece of paper?

Many artists have started using it to as a digital sketch book and printing it onto canvases as the image resolution is so high. The screen is only 7cm but it allows u to zoom in by 1600%. Another new tool is auto desk sketch mobile. Because the app is so accessible to any one it makes me wonder if anyone can claim to be an 'artist' or if the app still needs a certain skill level to be able to produce good quality art work.
