Check Geopointe and DemandTools.  The former uses Mapquest or Google, and the latter uses StrikeIron.

Please explain.  Which address?

Before asking if an app does something, please note if you have checked the AppExchange.  Have you looked there yet?

Hi,

  I was just looking at the Strikeiron, but iam getting many errors and i don't think we can go for it, but i saw the other one called

Address Verification – QAS for salesforce.com, i think this one looks much better than the other one , do you have any idea on this App.

I realize that this question already has a solution, but I think it might be helpful to you to have a couple more options.

Within Address Verification, there are a number of different services that are offered. Are you looking for a company to verify lists? Many companies offer this service, and it is called "scrubbing". Basically you send them a "dirty" list, or a list with a number of addresses you want checked, and they clean it up for you by checking to make sure all of the addresses are usable and in the correct USPS format.  They also verify deliverability and add a 12 digit barcode for mailing purposes.
If you are looking for a tool to add to your website where people can enter their own info, and it will be validated/verified, this is a little different. This would be a web service, typically an API.  There are many other companies (such as QAS and Strikeiron, as you have already discovered) who offer this service. SmartyStreets also has a tool called LiveAddress (http://www.smartystreets.com/Products/LiveAddress-API/)
Make sure to do research on different Address Verification services to make sure that you are getting the exact fit for your what your company needs.
