If you decide you want a stylus, try several out to see if it works with your iPad and the apps you use most. Artistic work may call for a different stylus and feel that one used for taking a quick note.
If you can hold a stylus before buying it to see how it feels in your hand and how it works with your iPad, do it. If you are looking at an electronic stylus, make sure it will work with your particular iPad model and app.
