    I'm left handed and i am really interested to know how many more members are and does it affect the way they use their devices.

    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!

    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.
