I use mine in landscape mode most of the time but if I'm reading a newspaper or magazine I find portrait mode better for me.

Yeah it depends on whats being used.

I use Landscape for games/movies, Portrait for reading. Thinks like web browsing and emailing ill switch back and forth. for web browsing if im holding the ipad ill do portrait but if its sitting on the table or something ill have it landscape. For emails Landscape is what I use to just read a few of them but if I have a ton of them to go through ill have it in landscape just so I can mark them off and go through them faster.

Just about the same. It's better in landscape for writing. When I have a lot of that to do I'll lock it. For reading too.

Interesting. Almost exclusively in portrait and I use mine to write as well.

Very rarely in landscape.

Landscape 99% of the time. Only time I'm in portrait is if the app requires it, like using an iPhone app on the iPad that can't be Full Forced.

Here's another question...when holding it in landscape do you hold it with the home button to the right or left?

Landscape the majority of the time. Only portrait when the app won't go any other way. Love it either way!!! I rarely use my MBP anymore!!

To the right most of the time - only to the left when I'm typing or watching video because the Apple case props it with the button to the left.

Ditto

As for the home button on the left or right, usually on the left because I have an Apple case, and it's easier to have the cover flap hanging down in the back, instead of flopping around on the bottom, or physically holding it against the back.

The reason I usually have it to the right is some games FORCE it that way..they won't rotate around.

I hold it to the right b/c I prefer the speakers on the right top (where my hand isnt) as opposed to the left bottom, covered by my left hand.

Its funny, because I actually find myself flipping it around when i notice the button is on the left, even when it doesnt make a difference...creature of habit i guess.
