That doesn't reflect the reality. There is an official app for this, and
if you're an EU citizen you can use it. If you aren't (just as I am
not), the reality is that they print the boarding pass with no charge
but only if you've done the online check-in and are able to display the
PDF version of the boarding pass on any of your devices.

I'm flying with Ryanair all the time about a dozen times a year, and in
the last two years I think it was just twice that I had a printed
boarding pass when I came to the airport.
