Open APIs for UK banking: It's happening, people

"can you write a screen scraper to get your info from the web pages?"

If you can save the page, it should be a piece of piss to do for anyone with even a small amount of programming ability.

The annoyance is that it might not be a single page: the coding would still be easy, but it's just the chore of having to save 'n' pages to get a complete statement.

What I find more irritating is the banks (and others) describing CSV files as "Microsoft Excel format" or similar.
