    Just got my 1st iPad and just wanted to know what way I should hold my iPad.

    Should it be with the round button on the right hand side so it's like widescreen or should it be with the round button at the bottom?

    Have to say websites look better the 1st way I said about.

    The beauty of an iPad is you can hold it anyway you like. I must agree, holding it in "landscape" is preferable to "portrait".

    I have a smart cover on, so when I fold it into a stand, the Home button is on the left, but whatever suits your set-up.

    Welcome to our forums..... Unlike laptops you can hold the iPad any way you want however in saying that I donot recommend holding iy with just the corner as it may slip and hit the floor. It is highly recommended to purchase a cover for it and better still one that covers both sides. Enjoy our forums and thanks for joining.

    Anyway.

    Personally, the natural way for me is portrait with home button at bottom.

    I normally use it in landscape mode,unless what I'm viewing requires portrait mode. I watch movies and TV shows in landscape mode,of course.

    Carefully. Seriously, too many "cracked my iPad" threads on here. (I prefer landscape.)

    For web browsing : portrait
    For reading books : portrait
    Some apps require both
    Working on a table typing : landscape
    You get the idea?
