How does VEX Via get competition data?

I’m considering writing an iOS app for my team. I’ve looked at the existing scouting apps for VEX and all them require the user to manually enter the information. Given that VEX Via app on iOS connects to servers to get the information, is that webservice available for public use?

One of the challenges parents and team members face with scouting during competition is ranking and taking notes. Downloading the entire list of teams makes it easier and more user friendly. It would also be great if the competition results are also available, that way a scouting app can show how a particular team did in past tournaments. I know some parents use the existing apps on iOS, but find them a bit cumbersome.

Anyone know the answer?
