This is so cool, and also the final fix to the longest lasting "android issue" ever
(even though, I'll be honest, no-ads sounds a bit too much like freeloading)

Not that I want to push or rush anything then, but is there any specific reason why uploading is so much on the backburner?

This was killed by FB.

I'll be honest... Half of of their demands are completely ludicrous (not last pretending an explanation of the "hows" for an open source application, lol, they must have copypasta bots), though as I hinted above this was always kind of begging for troubles.
I cannot vouch on the ethics of allowing to see stories without an account (but there is legal precedent that anything that is purposefully left public facing, cannot be disputed for theft/abuse), but even though IG is one of the biggest virtual spaces on the planet no-ads is still very much free riding.
