I used WeVideo for a video that I made entirely with my Samsung G3. The app
has limited features but I was able to cut and order clips. It took a long
time to upload clips and the final product. Then I discovered the browser
version has more features. We now have a class of students using it for a
Driver Ed Public service video. If you are interested write back next week
and I can report on their progress.

A cloud editor is nice but I still like OpenShot Video Editor
(open-source). It has also has made some major improvements.
