Before doing anything else, I would suggest running an sd data recovery program. Something like this
, to see if you can recover any of your data. I'm afraid that all your apps, are missing because they aren't there anymore. :/ Unless it is somehow different with your phone, usually formatting a card means you are also erasing all the data.. It would be a good idea to back up an sd card before formatting if possible!
I wish I had some magical advice for you.
I have a 32 gb card and would be so screwed if anything happened to it. It's a pain, but I try to back it up every now and then just in case. I just hope that you can recover all or some of your data...
I can't really explain this on a technical level, but cameras also format cards but they don't really get everything. They leave stuff behind that can be recovered back into what used to be there. Hopefully your formatted card is in a similar state.
Good luck! I'll keep my fingers crossed.
