I would really like to see the following book digitized and available on Logos.

ACTA APOSTOLORVM APOCRYPHA
POST CONSTANTINIM TISCHENDORF
DENDO DEDIRERUNT
RICARDUS ADELBERTUS LIPSIUS
MAXIMILIANUS BONNET
LIPSIAE
APUD HEKMANNUM MENDELSSOHN
MDCCCXCI  (1898-1903)

It seems the best text (with critical apparati) of the NT Apocrypha is the 3 volume series titled "Acta Apostolorum Apocrypha." There is an earlier version in the mid 1800's by Tichendorf, but a 3 volume version came out from 1898-1903 by RICARDVS ADELBERTVS LIPSIVS ET MAXIMILIANVS BONNET (Richard Adelbert Lipsius 1830-1892 and Max Bonnet 1841-1917 http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/webbin/book/lookupname?key=Bonnet%2c%20Max%2c%201841-1917). Those three volumes titled: (1) Pars Prior, (2) Pars Alterius, Volumen Prius, (3) Pars Alterius, Volumen Alterum were apparently combined into one volume in 1959 and reprinted by G. Ohms as a single volume.

Google books has the 1959 reprint by Ohms at https://books.google.com/books?id=HRd2YMl2HV8C&pg=PR5&dq=acta+apostolorum+apocrypha+1959&hl=en&sa=X&ei=-ltqVf2vI5CUyASJuYLwDA&ved=0CDgQ6AEwBjgK#v=onepage&q=acta%20apostolorum%20apocrypha%201959&f=false . It has a purchase price of about $19 US. I assume the 1959 reprint has all three tomes, but I cannot verify that. Internet Archive has a Jan 2015 upload by bub_upload https://archive.org/details/bub_gb_G4ydpWeFpdEC has 1184 pages, so that may be the full reprint. (Is the 1959 reprint of a 1903 book still under copyright?).

The point I'm trying to make is that there are original texts which are original NT Greek related texts (with a critical apparatus) which are still not available on the Logos platform. These volumes should be offered.

There are some related books on the NT Apocrypha:

(1) New Testament Apocrypha, Vol. 1: Gospels and Related Writings Revised Edition

xford University Press; 1 edition (July 21, 2011),ISBN-10: 0199732108,ISBN-13: 978-0199732104.

I think Logos does offer some English translations:

(4) The Apocryphal New Testament: Being the Apocryphal Gospels, Acts, Epistles, and Apocalypses, by James, Montague Rhodes,  Clarendon Press    1924

(5) Apocryphal Gospels: An Introduction by Klauck, Hans-Josef,  T&T Clark 2003

Does anyone have any updates on digitizing the NT Apocrypha?

Hi Louis. 

Logos does also have an edition and translation of the Apocryphal Gospels extant in Greek: https://www.logos.com/product/17854/greek-apocryphal-gospels-fragments-and-agrapha
