    Just want to know how many people use their iPad in landscape mode vs. portrait mode?

    I mainly like the landscape mode bigger keyboard easier to hold!

    I personally don't know how to do it on here, but I think this would make an interesting Poll, if it already hasn't been done. BTW, I seem to use portrait most of the time.

    Landscape for most things.

    Landscape exclusively, except for a few iPhone apps that are too dumb to rotate.

    Landscape, unless using iPhone app or portrait orientation pictures, with the home button to the left

    Yep. Only when reading a magazine do I switch it to portrait. Landscape works good for my hands.

    landscape or portrait use for me is based entirely upon what I am doing. I primarily use my iPad for web surfing (landscape), watching of videos/TV (landscape), looking at pictures (either, depending on orientation of pictures) and reading of books and manuals (portrait).

    Invariably landscape for me, and always with the home button to the left; it just feels wrong the other way round :0)

    Landscape for me too, 99% of the time, but it is only what I got used to from first having my iPad.

    But you can't take photos with the Home button on the left. You'll be blocking the lens.

    I think you will find you can. It is basically turning the iPad upside down. The camera lens will always be on the opposite side whichever way you set your iPad. Horse for courses, really. The iPad is so flexible that way IMHO.
    Try it and see.
