Changed behavior when marking articles as read in the Android app.

The new android app seems to have changed in a few ways. My particular annoyance is about the new ‘mark (newer|older) as read’. In older versions this was simply ‘mark previous as read’ which did exactly what I want.

  • the scroll position is not properly adjusted. When a bunch of items get removed from the top of the list, the scroll position is still where it was before relative to the start of the list and I have to scroll all the way up to continue reading where I was
