The battery is pretty good as it is, but I use JuiceDefender anyway. On the default settings and it significantly increases battery life. That's one app anyway!
For apps, get all the Google apps first. That includes, Maps and Search widget. Delete Bing from the homescreen and drop in the Google Search widget. (Bing is still on the phone, but just not in your face!)
Other apps I like:
Nook/Kindle/Google Books (Screen is great to read on!)
Chrome to Phone
Swiftkey keyboard, (best keyboard prediction I've found)
Poweramp/Mixzing/Doubletwist (Pick one of these, they are the best 3 audio players I found on Android IMHO, but there are others if you search the market.)
Touchdown for Exchange, (all the stock Android email apps are crappy at handling Exchange email they can do it, but you have to constantly switch between folders to see your mail. This $20 app gives you a much more "Blackberry-like" experience.)
On AppBrain you can view what apps others have on their phones. It can sometimes be a useful feature.
That should get you started!
