    You can send them a version of your app through TestFlight.
    We created a video tutorial not too long ago - Hope it helps.

    I'm not sure I understand. Are you experiencing an issue?

    i did it this way last time and it worked great

    a fast way to share a game with a friend for Mac play:

    open your project in GS
    Publish … to Macintosh
    and click through the Publish screens
    (you will need to add a 512x512 icon and a 1280x800 screenshot
    …you will probably want the icon … if not it can be a transparent png in the correctSize
    … and the screenShot can be a transparent png in the correctSize)

    -leave the Publish to app store … unchecked
    -do not have full-screen … unless you want that (Advanced Options)

    GS will build and give you back a running app for desktop
    that will open in the platformSize (iPhone; iPad; whatever) you chose
    (don't fret the touch input also respond to the mouse click)

    email (compress/zip if largeSize) the app to your friend for their play on a Mac
