I have been using the NASB for the past 30+ years, wearing out and/or rebinding several copies. I really like having the Mantis NASB/NASS with me all the time, but there are many features missing in the Mantis version that are present in every other versions, both print and online.

For example, none of the Psalms have the preambles which say what the type of psalm it is and who wrote it. Also in the Psalms some information is missing that aids in the study and understanding of those verses. For example, in Psalms 119 every group of 8 verses is referenced to a letter of the Hebrew alphabet. I find that information in every version I've found except Mantis.

Most important, the extensive cross references that I have in all my old print copies, and are used in the Blue Letter Bible and Bible Gateway versions, are missing. I keep having to switch to the NIV version to find a lot of this information. This is doable, but slow on my iPhone 3G, and it breaks the flow of reading.

I recall you saying that you only take what they send you and convert it. Is there a contact at the Lockman Foundation that I can appeal to for an upgrade on what they provide so that all this information is available?

As always, thanks for a great app.

We can contact Lockman and see if we can get an update from them.

When you contact them, you might mention that they have a misspelling in their Strong's listing for "Praise": 1984b halal (237d); a prim. root; to be boastful, to priase ...
I first found this error in the NASS (specifically in Ps 150:1 but it is everywhere for halal) but then I found it on the Lockman Foundation's website StudyBibleForum.com so apparently it carried over from their original.
