    There are a few apps that simply look better in portrait (and some that will only operate in portrait), but otherwise, it's all landscape for me.

    Interesting because I do the opposite with the Home button to the right so it is near my right thumb for use. Also this means the Sleep button is on the upper left where it is hard to press by accident. Also if I did it the other way I would have the speaker blocked by my left hand most of the time.

    Depends on the app and what I'm doing, but otherwise usually in portrait mode (mainly because of the leather folio my iPad sits in.)

    I love using portrait when I don't have to do a lot of typing, It feels a little more natural for me. But I couldn't live w/o landscape!

    Odd question really as I never think about it, just turn to get more on screen.

    Graphically horizontal is more instinctive, as eyes are not vertical, but for the written word it's always portrait as it's the common page layout. Nature and nurture in harmony.....
