I was wondering how you hold the iPad.
Which way do you use it most of the time.

Lying back on my sofa, on my knee. Pretty much like this:



and after that gets tiring, like this:



and then back to the first one.

I use landscape mode with home button on the right the majority of the time (I would probably use it on the left but then my hand would be over the speaker).

I change it when I have my headphones attached.

I hold it in whichever direction I end up turning it. THe only orientation I don't use is upside down, although I sometimes accidentally end up holding it that way.

Well, it's a process. I start by putting on Thievery Corporation (Versions) and by pouring a couple glasses of red wine from Tuscany. I light a few candles around the room and then draw the shades....

If this is insane you need to get out more often.:)
inane, not insane

I would think someone so concerned about someting as banal as how others hold the iPad would better pay attention to the verbage of other posts.

And I stick by my question, if you don't like it then don't read it.

I usually just keep it in the propped up position in landscape mode with the apple case on. I find it comfortable that way in any situation.

This is about as inane as the toilet paper roll question.
exactly, with the correct answer being "off the top" instead of doing it wrong and having it roll down from the back.

I don't care about your cats ........... just do it correctly.

I'm so glad my cat doesn't do that lol. He just sleeps and purrs and snuggles.

Portrait with the home button at the top when I'm sitting or lying down as otherwise the button is fiddly to get to and the speaker port is blocked.

I have it in the Apple iPad case. I honestly can't imagine using it any other way. Most of the time it is rested on my knees; other times I hold it up b the case behind the iPad and on top of where the case folds back.
