I want to rewrite to

I have used this rewrite but it's not working.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule    ^apps/?$    ^(.*)\step1.php$   [NC,L]

Also tried

RewriteRule    ^apps/?$     apps/app4/step1.php$   [NC,L]

What could be wrong?

The rule that does what you ask is:

RewriteRule ^apps apps/app4/step1.php [NC,L]

Depending on your app, you may want more:

RewriteRule ^apps(.*) apps/app4/step1.php?args=$1 [NC,L]
