Why doesn't the page go to the first page of a story when I go to a previous/next story?

The navigation may seem funny when you're just flipping through pages, but makes a lot more sense when you put yourself in an actual readers shoes. Imagine you were really a reader, who was on say page 5 of an 8 page article when you turned the page to the next/previous story (deliberately or inadvertently). If the page was reset to go to the first page of the story, you would be forced to go to the effort of flipping through pages to try and find where you left off and, on a mobile device where there are a lot more pages in a story, this would become a very irratating experience.  

Because of this, we made MagTitan smarter so it would remember where a reader left off in a story, allowing them to effortlessly continue on when they return.
