Some of my apps are using landscape view.

Currently using Landscapeorientationleft.

Anybody knows, which is the most prefered landscape orientation?

i) Left (button on left) or
ii) right (button on right)?

    Preferrably you should support both orientations, and launch with the Home button on the right side if you don't support portrait mode. If you only support one landscape orientation, I would guess having the Home button on the right is the best option.

    iPhone Human Interface Guidelines:
    A landscape-only application should support both landscape orientations—that is, with the Home button on the right or on the left. If the device is already physically in a landscape orientation, a landscape-only application should launch in that orientation. Otherwise, a landscape-only application should launch in the orientation with the Home button on the right by default.

    I've seen so many apps that run only in landscape-right that Apple reviewers must be ignoring this part of the HIG.

    My current project is designed to run in landscape-right only.
