    OP, you didn't vote yourself. There was a zero in "horizontal".

    Beside that I use both orientation, depend on what app I'm using and where.

    I use my iPad almost always vertically, unless watching movies, when I use it horizontally.

    I do a lot of typing on mine, so it's almost always Horizontal (landscape).

    The keyboard is too small in portrait to really type at any speed.

    I have an external Apple bluetooth keyboard, but I don't use it very often. It's inconvenient to drag along with me.

    About the only time I flip into portrait mode is to read a book.

    I only wish there was a way to fully mute while locked in horizontal.

    70% vertical, 30% horizontal. I prefer vertical except of course when I'm gaming.

    there is...use the switch on the side for mute. then, in the multitasking bar just use the button to lock the orientation. then, just unlock from there.

    I use both orientations, interchangeably, depending on what app is in use. Even in apps that use both, like Flipboard, Kindle, Safari, and Twitter I use both, depending on the content and my mood.

    OP, I don't see how you can always use your iPad in one orientation as certain Apps require certain orientation (i.e. apps like Temple Run in vertical/portrait; Garageband and the like in horizontal/landscape)

    Pretty much always horizontal...I sometimes play with the camera vertically, but even after 3 iPads, I just don't see the ipad as a camera, It feels all wrong and it's hard to hold it properly for pictures..A shame because the camera itself is quite good when you stack it up against a mid-price compact.

    I actually use it vertically most of the time for the same reason. Typing on the keyboard in landscape just seems too cramped. I use the split keyboard in portrait mode and type with my thumbs. Works very well.

    And to answer the OP's question, mine is in portrait mode probably 75% of the time. I use landscape only to watch movies or play games where portrait isn't
    an option.

    Poll should be "how do you mostly use your iPad"?
