My MacBook and iPhone were stolen?

My boyfriend was staying with me for a few weeks, and we ended up randomly breaking up but when he left he took my MacBook, and my iPhone THAT I KNOW OF. The reason I found out he did it was because he's trying to sell it to a friend of mine. I knew my phone was gone right away, but I just got a new MacBook for Christmas. A few people are telling me I should press charges on him, so that he don't do it to other people. The police are already involved on getting my things back. I'm just wondering if I'd be the bad person if I did, or if it'd be the right thing to do.

I think I have bought a fake iphone 5?

I bought an iPhone 5 from ebay for £340 he claimed it was 'brand new in box, genuine iphone 5' it is white and gold. I've noticed that the iPhone 5 series never introduced white and gold and only the 5S sell white and gold ones. At first I though maybe he thinks it's an iPhone 5 but it's actually the 5S but then I realise it can't be a 5S either because it doesn't have that gold ring around the home button like every other 5S. Another thing is that when it had arrived I looked at the back and noticed it doesn't have the 'designed by apple essembled in china' stamp and the code numbers etc below the 'iPhone' stamp. I already have an iphone and it has that stamp but this new phone I have bought doesn't and It should. It also doesn't have the 'CE' stamp which proves its safe, like all real iPhones have. The man claimed it was genuine, so if it is fake can I get my money back? I payed through PayPal, thanks!

Puchasing app from the App Store?

I purchased an app (Adobe Photoshop Touch) for my iPad from the Apple App Store. It downloaded fine and it works perfectly fine but when I go to the App Store to view all my purchased apps (both in the "All" tab and the "not on this ipad" tab) it won't show up in the list! The reason why this is a problem for me is because I want to download Adobe photoshop touch on my iphone also without paying for it again using the same apple ID but now I cant because that app wont show up in the purchased apps list at all! When I search for it in the app store they ask me to pay for it again!

Why is this happening with that certain app? All the other apps show up in the Purchased Apps list except for Photoshop!
