It would be great if you could add the information from the record of the hints to a individual in your RootsMagic tree much like you do with TreeShare. In addition It should keep track of what I have accepted for my RootsMagic tree vs what has been accepted for the individual on FamilySearch Family Tree.

A FT API for WebHints would be nice. Hopefully FamilySearch will make that. For now you accept or reject the WebHint in RM or on FamilySearch and it will keep track of that. Once you add the record to the person in FamilySearch you can use the FamilySearch Person Tools in RM to move the fact and source back to RM. It doesn't support the media yet at this time.

I thought it existed. Apparently I was wrong.

Well the FT API for WebHints does exist that is what we are using, but you are wanting it more developed like Ancestry. Same goes with the MyHeritage and Findmypast APIs for WebHints.
