Hi, I have downloaded some data from the open street map site but found them 
incomplete. I want an entry should include street/avenue, town/city and 
country etc. for instance,
1. street, Turgut Reis Sultanbeyli Istanbul Turkey.
At least it can be without country name.
1. st, Turgut Reis Sultanbeyli Istanbul.
But in most Osm data, It only shows the street name, nothing more. only 1. 
street. What can be done to correct these entries i do not know.

This is the wrong requirement: You should program an application to share 
points with non-commercial systems, not with commercial ones.
As "commercial" implies, you will have to pay if you use such data.

There is already the OpenStreetMap converter to import points from this 
non-commercial data source.

We are working on a mobile application to write back POIs to OSM.
