On the iPhone app, hitting the back button from in an article detail view scrolls to the top of the list. It used to stay put in the last version. This is very annoying because I need to scroll back down to find my place in the list again (I don’t necessary read every article so there are several skipped unread articles in the list)
I don’t think that’s the case. I just tested it and it worked fine. Not only that, I purposefully scroll you to where the story you were reading is, even if it wasn’t on screen when you were last on the story list.
I created a screen recording showing the behavior:
When I click back from the article, it automatically scrolls back to the top.
