Aggregating accounts

I tried out the First Direct internet banking plus service, which will aggregate my different online banks and savings accounts and credit cards and utility suppliers and mobile phone accounts and frequent flyer accounts and so forth, and apart from the hassle of putting in all the details of the accounts, getting distracted and doing things on a couple of the sites and taking so long that the First Direct service logged me out and lost all those details, it seems to work reasonably well. It insists on showing me a balance sheet when I just want the list of accounts. Oh and of all the accounts I put in with the different services I use, guess which was the only one it couldn't get the account balances for?

First Direct.
