Yes, you can download a mobile boarding pass into your phone and use it when travelling, but not always. If you complete an online check-in, you can see that boarding passes must be printed for use:

On the Ryanair's website is written, that they accept mobile boarding passes on flights from the majority of airports on their network. But some airports cannot accept mobile boarding passes yet.

Because of that, it is recommended to have also a printed version of your boarding pass.

I have seen some passengers are using only a boarding passes in their mobile phones at the airport. If you plan to use a mobile boarding pass in your phone, it is better to have it downloaded than have it in email or app, because if there will be some problems with mobile network or internet connection, you will not be able to access it and use it.

If possible, I recommend to have a boarding pass printed on paper, because it can happen that some technical problems may occur on the phone or it can just run out of battery.

Please note there is a difference between a "mobile boarding pass" and a regular boarding pass. Mobile boarding pass is available when using a Ryanair App. It looks a bit different and it has a QR code instead of a barcode.

I would say it is good to have a boarding pass printed, even as a backup when using a mobile boarding pass.

If you need to have your boarding pass printed for some reason, Ryanair can usually print it at the airport for a fee. But this option is a bit expensive and it may cause you a delay.

It is not recommended to use a taken photos of your boarding pass, because of possible scanning (reading) problems. There can be also problem with using of mobile boarding pass, if phone screen is cracked. In this case there is a big chance that scanners won't be able to read it.
