Then add a written offer for the source code to your application.
That's perfectly fine with the GPL (and with me).

    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your

    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
    customarily used for software interchange
