Hi, I want to use OSM in my iOS application, and I found a solution that OSM is not providing any SDK to integrate for mobile APPS.Do I definitely need to go for 3rd party libraries to integrate open street Maps?.If Yes please suggest me some open source libraries to load kml files and GeoJSON files on to the map view.Please help me

Yes you definitely need to go for 3rd party libraries, however quite a few are Open Source. Depending on the technology you are using to develop your application, man different approaches exist - see our iOS wiki page. You will very likely also need to set up a server component that delivers OSM data or OSM-based services to the mobile device, again this depends on the technology and library chosen. While OpenStreetMap data is free, OpenStreetMap server capacity isn't (at least not at scale), hence the requirement to run your own server powering your app.
