Never forget to set your flag to half staff again with the Half Staff App!

Receive a push notification to your iOS device the night before the American flag needs to be at Half Staff.

This simple app tracks when the President issues a half staff proclamation, as well as on pre-determined days such as Patriot Day, Memorial Day, Peace Officers Memorial Day and Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

What’s New

Version 1.1

It's been about 2 years since we pushed this app to the App Store, so we figured it was about time to bring the app up to speed.

In this version, you'll see fixes for all the popular bugs, including:
- The app saying that the next half staff date was (null) (null)
- Push notifications not actually sending
- The app not connecting to the servers
- Links actually are clickable and provide more information about the Half Staff day
- And more!

In addition, we've sized the app to work natively with the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

We've also gotten numerous pieces of feedback requesting state-level notifications. We will begin introducing those throughout the next few months, so if you're really interested in a certain state, we'd love to hear it! Leave a review with the name of the state your interested in, or contact us at support@halfstaffapp.com

Much improved, at least so far...

The last time we had a half-staff day, I got the notification days late. This was unacceptable. I tried to send them a message, and maybe they got it, because all of the notifications for the half-staff for the Paris attacks arrived on-time (the night before, how it should be) instead of days late. It remains to be seen if it will keep working this way, but I have a feeling it will. Good job guys. Thank you for your hard work on this app.

Add push for Louisiana

More people should have this app. The reason why is more people should have a flag pole at the home or business. Please keep up the good work and add Louisiana to your app. This week we had a terrible scene in our great state and we are flying half staff. I would have loved a push notification at the time the order to lower the flags were given.

App in distress

Love the app. I use it to ensure flags where I work are properly displayed based on Presidential Proclamation but have a concern that I recently noticed. The “click here” feature for more info does not redirect or respond. I'm running the latest iOS on my iPhone 8 Plus. I also don’t see a way to forward flag info (email, message, etc). I would also like to see any State of Delaware flag updates posted in the future.
