I use Cache Cleaner NG, which... yeah... cleans the cache, once or twice a day (you decide). This keeps up the performance of your phone.
Besides that, you can remove unwanted stock apps, that takes up space and memory.
Also, you can overclock, but I don't approve of that.
You can install "Adfree" from market, and remove commercials from apps on your phone.
Titanium backup, backs up apps + data, if you decide to install a custom ROM, and want to restore you savegames e.g. afterwards
Finally, you can change the theme (custom battery mod and so on and so on)
Basically, a lot of cool stuff, and the list is much longer, but now I hope you've got an idea
