Papa Johns has announced a new app for the Apple device, making it the first national restaurant chain to launch an Apple TV app.

There's a new and arguably not very useful app for your Apple TV (assuming you're using the 4th-generation model): Adobe Lightroom. The app is only for viewing photos, the idea being that you can easily access them from your Creative Cloud to show friends and family your latest shots on the big screen. You will need a Creative Cloud subscription to use the app, of course, as well as uploaded photos.
