Video editing is usually reserved for the keyboard and mouse class of apps. But I suppose that, since everything needs to climb on the tablet, you could use VideoShow to pimp up your home videos. Considering most video content is also taken with the same device, it should be like a match made in heaven.
Is it though? Video editing usually involves precision the like of which tapping at a screen cannot equal. Luckily, we're not talking professional levels of editing here. Not even semi-professional. The tools and features of VideoShow are more akin to the picture pimping apps than what you can do in a proper photo editing application. Be that as it may, VideoShow certainly has its uses. Oh look at me, I'm already jumping to conclusions.
VideoShow can import video clips but it can also be used to film them. Importing multiple clips will automatically put them on a time line. Each clip can have its own filtering, but most of the tuning will apply to the entire video.
The most impressive feature by far are the themes. A theme includes a video overlay effect and an implied song. There are many themes, and most of them can really enhance your home video to a professional looking montage. On top of that, there are effects, gif animations and stickers that can enhance (read: clutter) your creation. You can change the sound track and even record your own voice over. What impressed me was the ability to add in subtitles. You won't be subbing entire anime episodes with this, but it's quite useful for short bursts of text nonetheless.
Regarding proper editing, the best you can do is trim your video into manageable chunks. There's also zooming, rotating, speeding up and even reversing play (if you let go of your shekels).
Speaking of which, there is also premium content available for download. Although some are free, other themes and effects can only be purchased. However, there's plenty of free material, so you don't need to worry. Besides that, you can create your own gifs out of your video clips. Imagine that! If you do feel like unlocking all the premium features, the Pro version is just around the corner, and it's not even expensive.

I can see VideoShow being used for quick arrangements prior to uploading your trip footage to YouTube or other social media platform. It is indeed fairly easy to use although it does have its limitations. The shorter the clip, the better it will perform though.
