    Portrait, unless an app forces me into landscape.

    Landscape for most things, though I will use portrait for all reading (Kindle/Zinio, etc), and sometimes for Zite and Flipboard, though I use them in landscape more often.

    Landscape. Although iReddit forces me to go to portrait when entering another sub reddit.

    When I got the iPad 1, I used it mostly in portrait orientation. Now that I have an iPad 4 with a smart cover, it's mainly in landscape orientation to take advantage of using the cover as a stand.

    Portrait for web-browsing & email, landscape for gaming.

    I like the portrait orientation since you can generally view an entire A4 page of text without scrolling or zooming.

    Portrait, unless I'm typing with the on-screen keyboard or watching a video. As strange as it was to me that Apple chose a 4:3 aspect ratio, I've come to appreciate it now that I have an iPad. It's even nicer on smaller screens, as the Nexus 7 feels like a large phone while the mini feels like a small tablet. Admittedly, this is based on a brief handling of both devices.

    Why do you use iReddit over Alien Blue? Just curious.

    Portrait 99% of the time - only if the app I'm using forces me to landscape :)

    I use mine nearly exclusively in landscape mode. I had to rotate to portrait the other day for an app and it felt all weird!

    I enjoy reading it in a diagonal position. For ebooks and such. (why is there no "other" option in the poll?)

    When it comes to movies, however, I prefer portrait mode.

    Depends on the app that I'm using.

    Doesn't this thread already exist?

    Anyway, landscape for me.

    Portrait since I use it for reading. On my old iPads I would use it in landscape for watching movies, but since have gotten a MBA for that.

    I found it easier for myself to type in portrait mode. Maybe it's because I'm not a huge fan of the split keyboard or I'm just used to the thumb placement from my iPhone, but it works for me. I used landscape mostly for videos and when I'm reading something that I want to make bigger, although the safari plug in for increasing fonts and Mercury browser have rendered that easier in portrait, too.

    Landscape for everything except when reading books. I have big hands, so typing is no problem.

    Pretty much only portrait unless an app forces me to go into landscape

    Ditto. Landscape for everything except iBooks and Kindle. Oh, and viewing photos taken in portrait.
