Which Orientation Do You Prefer to Use?

One of the joys of using an iPad is in how much choice you have when it comes to using it. The fact that you can choose your preferred orientation is a huge progression from almost all computing options across the last few decades, most of which have forced users to work in a landscape orientation.

There have been quite a few studies done into iPad orientation, most of which show portrait beating out landscape as the preference. While some activities are clearly more suited to certain activities, watching a film in portrait wastes an awful lot of space, many are simply down your own personal discretion. Which orientation do you prefer?

If you have the choice, such as when browsing or reading, which way do you naturally turn the iPad? It’d be interesting to know what the preference of the illustrious AppStorm readership is?

    When my iPad used to be docked in Apple’s dock, it only had the option for portrait which I didn’t like that much. Now, in the Compass stand in Landscape, it’s a lot better and I love it even more!

    Now that all depends on the app or website I’m using, some are better in landscape some in portrait. That’s one thing that makes the ipad and its aspect ratio so great.
