How are you doing the networking between tablets and server?
I understand that Wifi isn't an option at competition. Is it bluetooth?
I helped with the beta testing for this program, so I can try to answer these questions as well.

At this time, it is not open source.

When you are at competition, there are a few ways that you can transport data. 1) You can use the QR Code function. I did not test apple or windows phone versions, but with the android version, there is a tab in the app that says "Send Data." If you go to that tab and after you have saved data, you can transfer the data by selecting QR Code. It will then display a QR code that you can scan using the QR Code scanner on the server application.

2) You could use ethernet. You can set up a router at competition as long as wireless is turned off. You can still use the ethernet portion of it. There are adapters out there that you can use to bring an ethernet port to a device with micro-usb or lightning cables. Though they can be kind of spendy, it is possible.
