RYANAIR HAS TODAY launched an updated version of its app today which allows you to not only browse and book flights but also check-in and use your phone as a boarding pass.

The airline company first launched its app, charging customers €3 to download it. The services on the older version of the app were limited to bookings, baggage check-ins and timetables.

This updated version, however, is free to download on in iTunes and for Android.
