I am searching for a application with the following functionality, but cant find one:

I want to read PDFs. I want to highlight some text from time to time or add a note (with its timestamp). The summary of all highlights / notes should aggregated together so there is some special page(s) / section that contain only the highlighted text and notes.

Does something like this exist? I know there are dozens of apps for reading itself, but i am not sure whether there is app that allows me to list in "my highlighted content" only.

The Amazon Kindle app can do this. It's free and you can add your own PDFs to it.

When you highlight some text, an option to write a note is presented (the icon with the pencil):

Then you can go to "My Notebook" to have an overview of all text snippets and your corresponding notes:
