    I put 64gb into my edge and went to the app manager to assign the apps to the sd card. I assigned the first app but now when I go into other apps there isn't the option to assign the apps to sd card. Why would this be the case??

    Go to settings, application manager, choose the app you want to move. Then click storage and select sd card.
    There is an app which while highlight all the apps that can be moved, however you still have to manually move them.
    Hope that helps.

    Did you format your sd card as internal (adoptable) or external(portable)?

    Only certain apps can be moved to the SD card. If they can you will have the option in Application manager. If a particular app cannot be moved, that option does not appear.
