Thread title changed to match the question.

ya (past) = already, yet "Ya fui a la tienda" - "I already went to the store"
ya (present) = now, at once, immediately
ya (interjection) ¡Ya! - That's right!, That's it!, Of course!

todavía - still, yet "¿todavía tienes ese coche? - Do you still have that car? ; No llega todavía - He's not here yet.
aún - still, yet (pretty synonymous with todavía)
aun - even "aun los pobres" - "even the poor"
