Links to Another Canvas Item

I haven't found a way yet to create a page inside of my canvas course and provide a link to another course item such as a discussion and have it behave nicely inside of the mobile app.  It works great in a regular browser.  But in the mobile app, it opens another browser window instead of staying in the app.  I know I can write the link so it behaves in the mobile app by changing the href but then it breaks in the regular browser.  How do I make links like that intuitive based on a regular browser versus the app?

I think the ideal solution would be for the mobile app to detect when the user taps a link, and resolve that URL if possible to an in-app URL which would route the user to the correct location in-app. It should be pretty feasible, and would make it so that all existing pages across Canvas would automatically work, without change.
