    Do you have your home button to the left or right?

    Just curious :) I always have mine to the right.

    Lol. Don't know why but I just like it to the right and wondered if anyone else had a preference.

    I like it to be on whatever side is needed for the speaker to be on top

    I would say 50-50, though it may be 48-52.:D

    It depends on where I want the Smart Cover to be, top or bottom.

    I never really use the home button so it doesn't matter to me, I use the four finger gestures.

    Usually on the right. Since this puts the volume buttons on top. The exception is when I'm carrying it around with headphones connected. In this case I prefer it the other way around so that the headphone jack isn't in the way of my grip.

    +1. For me, the exception is when I'm using my iPad while it is charging, in which case I just hold it whichever way the cable lets me.

    Thats what she said.... Sorry I am a 31 year old child... :(
    I use it to the right but have noticed I have a few apps that will always start upside down the auto correct. Makes me think I am doing it wrong.

    Ha! I'm stealing that one.

    Back on topic, my home button usually goes on the left because of my smart cover.

    On the right, I hate if I rest it on a table while using it and the volume goes all the way down because its resting on the volume controls.

    Always the left because otherwise it feels weird hitting the left volume button and it increase the volume opposed to decreasing it. Left should always decrease. :p

    Usually the home button is on the left for me. I watch a lot of movies on my iPad so having the headphone jack on the right feels a little more comfortable for me.

    Mine remains on the right. The reason being, the magnets in the case I have do not work properly when I close the cover to sleep the iPad if the device is turned in the opposite direction.

    However, when it's not in a case it's 50-50.

    Home button on the left so my hand is behind the speak and the sound reflects off my palm and is louder.

    I never ever thought about this. It's probably different for me every time.

    always on the right so my thumb doesn't accidentally hit the home button and close the app I'm in

    <=== If I want to use the smart cover in the close to flat position.
    ===> If I hold it or want to get the best sound from the speaker.
