Expensive Ryan Air iPhone app to find cheap flights?

Launching the app in London today, Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said:
“Ryanair is pleased to launch our latest passenger initiative (the iPhone/iPad app) which will allow passengers to book Europe’s lowest fares, manage their booking, and keep up-to-date with Ryanair news, directly from their iPhone or iPad.
Passengers can now book Ryanair flights anywhere they take their phone, day or night, ensuring that they never miss out on our lowest fares. Our new app is available today from the iTunes store for just €3.”


According to reviews, little work seems to have been put in the app (it is just a wrapper around the website) and it looks like another scam ancillary revenue, 3€ at a time.

Reviews:
  • Just a wrapper that sends a password to "unlock" their mobile site. Surprised Apple left this through.
  • HTML web app, does the job but fiddly, pages don't always load and buttons don't always react when selecting airports on booking screen. Fare text tiny and hard to see in clutter, ugly blurry icons. Ok as a web app but rip off charging as a native app.
  • Rubbish. Does not even give you a total price when you select your flights.
