There are no APIs that directly access MLS databases. Applications using church membership data get that data from headquarters databases and are only developed when officially sponsored and managed by the Church. The APIs to access membership data from Church databases are not released for third party applications.
The third party applications that utilize MLS data do not interface directly with MLS but instead use data exported from MLS. This means there is no third party application that uses realtime data. Each time membership data for these third party applications needs to be updated then a new export from MLS must be made and imported into the application.
Additionally MLS does not accept imported data from third party applications.
