Look at the export options... look at the manual... look at the tutorials... use the search function.... Any of the exporters that support android should at some point in their process give you an APK. That doesn't mean Construct 2 gives you an APK directly though. (CocoonJS, XDK, PhoneGap)

@BluePhaze

Thx for giving me more clue about this :)
So using which way (cocoonJS, XDK or phonegap?) I can get the smallest file size of APK?

I made an APK (the first shooting monster tutorial) with intel XDK and
WTF APK file size is 19MB LOL (I think it supposed to be like 2MB only)

Which way is the best way to get APK with smallest file size and how much I can reduce?
Please help me :')

In my experience using CocoonJS further reduces the size Intel XDK, but you should know that both insert libraries for use.

CocoonJS and Intel XDK both ad wrappers to your game (basically they add a built in browser around it) that add to the size of the APK. Intel adds 17MB to your game size with their wrapper.

I tried cocoonJS and size became 7MB from 19MB that's good part
but cocoonJS added 3 second intro of ludei and seems there's no option to remove it.
If cannot remove that's really joke lol
I'd prefer to pay rather than having 3 seconds of other brand intro in my game.

I wouldn't worry about this too much right now. You still need to make a game first.
