How could I privately share a personal use capx to a friend?

Just started using Construct 2? Post your questions here

I want to make a gift for a friend. I want it to be really funny / weird and implement things that would otherwise be copyright, like popular music and well known ideas.

It'll just be between her and me, a mobile game to maybe make them laugh / feel better.

Any way I could easily share it to them and only them if they just have a phone and we can't meet in person?

And is this still considered personal use?

Oh sorry. Export it through Android.
Create the APK file and send it through Email.

I don't know the file limit of dropbox but if it allows 20+ MB, then you can also upload the APK file then send them the link.
Look online on instruction how to install APK file on Android devices.

The free version can run a .capx that exceeds the free version limitations - it just cannot edit it in any way. So you could get them to just install the free version.

If you have a licensed copy then you could either export via the cordova option or use one of the many free hosting sites that still do allow you to run an html file.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
