Default How do you position your fingers in iPad FPS's?

How do you position your fingers? I like to have my left thumb controlling movement (back and forth and such), and on my right hand I have my middle finger aiming and my right thumb pressing the shoot button. This works well as you can aim while you shoot. Anyone else have good strategies?

Middle and Index finger extended, pointing slightly away from each other, the others bunched into a fist.

I use my left thumb to move, and my right thumb to do everything else; look around, shoot, reload etc.
