    I'm left handed, too. I haven't really noticed any difficulties, but I have noticed on occasion - after I've been on my iPad for a while - that I often end up using upside down without realizing it. Not sure if this is a lefty issue or if I'm just careless.

    I am left handed too. No issues for me too. Only reason why I also end op with an upside down ipad is because of the charging cable connected. I turn it upside down because of the possibility of damaging the plug/cable. At least we can work upside down with ipad, my Samsung Glaxy S Plus phone does not allow it

    yes i do that too,its not something realised might be an issue so thats another reason I'm glad i chose iPad,i had found one the years that mice were a problem as the buttons were usually for right handed people,now i have the magic trackpad so it doesn't matter as its for both.

    I am left handed. Damm school teachers tried to convert me to right-handed. Most serial killers, President Obama, 94.345% of all rappers are right handed, the Prius was designed by a right-hander and most police that accost me are right handed. Thank God The Devil is left handed.

    My brother is left-handed...however, is actually ambidextrous from being "forced" to use his right hand for many things. Like all of you that has posted--school teachers and tools made for a right-hander...he had to learn to both ways!

    If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation

    Its odd how it goes in families,my three brothers are right handed,my sister and i are lefties,our parents were right handed,apparently in lefties the right side of the brain is more developed.
