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

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 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 . 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 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:
