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.
