    Just got the marshmallow update and can't figure out how to move apps to my sd card. Can someone tell me how to do it? It doesn't appear that it is done the same way it was done with lollipop

    Go to My Files. Your apps are there. You should be able to move the files to your MicroSD from there.

    Doesn't the SD card have to be formatted as Internal Storage to move apps onto it? By default, Marshmallow sets the card as External Storage. I think you have to re-format the card (make sure you back up all files first) and then tell Android you want the card to be Internal Storage. This article might help.

    I thought the question was moving apps to the SD card? Are we talking about moving files, or moving apps themselves?
