Export for Cordova and build with a service like Intel XDK or PhoneGap Build. We have tutorials covering it all.

You need open the .xdk file (project) in Intel XDK

Alternatively you can use Visual Studio Community with Tools for Apache Cordova (all for free).
https://www.visualstudio.com/vs/community/
https://taco.visualstudio.com/en-us/doc ... e-cordova/

Create a Javascript Cordova project in VS, paste the file output from Construct 2 into the www folder in the new project - and you're pretty much there.

I've used this setup to launch on Google Play, Amazon App Store, App Store (Apple), and Windows Store (for what it's worth!)

@AaronSmithUK here is a video e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j74sjb36pJI Might not be up to date completely because Intel XDK is evolving too. https://shatter-box.com
