    I use it vertical because I like to read pdf textbooks or papers, the vertical position seems natural to reading these.

    However, I do find that holding it horizontal is more comfortable to my hands...but then, I am like holding two iPad Air 2 side by side...

    Same for me, hold vertically to read papers. So I use stand instead of hands.

    Traditionally, my preference for holding ipad is portrait. Always. Dont know why, just seemed more natural. Like a book or magazine page.

    Now i've a huge Pro and pending smart keyboard, i'm altering my perceptions to view it as landscape as the norm. And why not? I mean, i view my tv and computer monitors in lanscape of course.

    Landscape. But once I get a Sena Vettra case that holds the iPP in both positions I will start using both. I don't like portrait holding it in my hands.

    It seems like it would be more natural to hold the pro in landscape.

    Mostly in landscape mode, but occasionally in portrait mode.

    Depends on the application. Some apps are designed for one or the other.

    Landscape with tweetbot up.

    Landscape with no second app is actually uncomfortably large for me.

    Vertical most of the time. For me it mainly replaces paper - magazines, books, sheet music...

    I hold it diagonally. Get the best of both worlds.

    both but have smart keyboard, so that is making me use landscape much more than i would like; im sure i will get used to it but its annoying for magazines that wont display in landscape either at all (like outside magazine) or GQ, which for some inexplicable reason has removed their landscape support

    vertical for browsing the internet, reading magazines and pdfs etc or taking notes. Horizontal for code editing, composing emails, using Excel or Omingraffle and reading ebooks. Even if I didn't use the smart keyboard I would still use them that way round, the same as I did with the ipad air 2

    On my iPad 3 it was landscape 99% of the time. But I find myself using the Pro in portrait mode for reading web pages more and more often now. I don't like the keyboard in portrait though...

    both ways.
    Portrait for books, landscape for web browsing.

    Landscape 97% of the time, even for note taking.
